Area of Responsibilities



  • Our internships are ideal for current students and recent graduates in the sciences seeking to gain an insight into life at a fast-growing healthcare consultancy. We work with a wide range of clients, including the industry’s most successful pharmaceutical and medical technology companies, patient and public health bodies and charitable organisations.
  • You will be presented with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with a variety of projects, typically working on two to three projects for the duration of your internship. All projects involve the assimilation, interpretation and creative presentation of data from clinical trials, and depending on your divisional and project allocations, you could be working on anything from medical communications to market access and evidence synthesis. Specific tasks could include supporting the preparation of medical education slides, performing systematic searches of medical literature, developing clinical trial manuscripts, or assimilating clinical and cost-effectiveness evidence to support HTA submissions to NICE. These meaningful and exciting projects contribute to improving healthcare outcomes globally. Interns receive one-to-one training on the technical aspects of the role and learn about project management and effective communication with clients.
  • Analyst/Medical Writer Interns may be based in any of our scientific divisions, and whilst you are here you would likely be working across projects for two different divisions. These are broadly categorised as Medical Communications, Value and Access and Evidence Development, and also include the specialist areas of Rare Diseases, MedTech and Health Policy. If you have a particular interest in any of our services please indicate this in your cover letter. Please note that, if successful, your division will be confirmed closer to your start date and, whilst every effort will be made to consider your divisional preference, this will be subject to business need and project availability.
