Our Summer Internship Program   

An internship with us gives you the opportunity to work side by side with passionate problem solvers on powerful and fulfilling work. Our collaborative culture inspires you to learn from the expertise surrounding you and to share your own knowledge and experience with colleagues. You’ll be asked to speak up and challenge the status quo – you have a voice and will be encouraged to use it.   

Additionally, over the summer, there will be opportunities to participate in events just for our interns:  social events with other interns, career development workshops, community service projects, and networking with senior leaders – just to name a few!   

This Opportunity   

GSW is a full-service healthcare communications agency that goes beyond advertising to create personalized brand experiences. We develop strategic marketing solutions for pharmaceutical, biotech and health-and-wellness clients around the world. We create experiences that involve, inspire, educate and activate people through ongoing brand journeys.   

Our GSW team is looking for an intellectually curious problem solver to join our team to help us continuously deliver strategic and data-driven solutions to our business unit partners and clients.   

This is a 10-week internship; full-time over Summer 2024.   

The goal of this internship is to offer the candidate a full view of what it is like to work in the healthcare communications field as part of a creative agency. During your time with the agency you will get exposed to all aspects of the agency and what it takes to bring an idea to life.     


  • Serving as an active member of the agency team, contributing to day-to-day tasks associated with developing work.

The hourly rate for this position ranges from $23 to $26.     

GSW turns against the premise of doing the “same old.” Our culture is focused on collaborative, meaningful advertising and day-to-day interpersonal interaction. We value the diverse backgrounds of our team members, and everyone has the opportunity to provide input and be heard.    

GSW is comprised of creative, motivated individuals who are all here for a reason. We welcome those who strive to work above and beyond their role, who voice their opinion and who are engaged in all aspects of the agency.   

GSW is part of Syneos Health Communications, a purpose-built collective of agencies focused on supporting health and biopharmaceutical innovators. We work in scalable, collaborative teams that partner across disciplines and geographies to deliver integrated communications strategies that accelerate brand performance. In today’s fast-changing and complex environment, success lies in making connections: between science, emotion, and technology; between data, design and human insight. We’re able to make those connections because our medical communications, digital, advertising, public relations, data science, research and market access specialists work closely with each other and with healthcare experts, including physicians, pharmacists and advocates. Together, we are the connected healthcare partner tapping rich insights to drive innovation, change behavior and pioneer a new era of accountable marketing.   

Syneos Health Communications is powered by Syneos Health, a global professional services organization designed to help the biopharmaceutical industry shorten the distance from lab to life.
