Our Summer Internship Program

Interning with our Corporate Practice gives you the opportunity to work closely with a multifaceted team of experts in science, medicine, media relations, business, diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) and internal engagement. We blend our skills to create persuasive, compelling communications for healthcare clients who are moving medicine forward. You will learn with us and from us as you integrate into our dynamic, creative, and supportive style of collaboration.


An internship with us gives you the opportunity to partner with passionate problem solvers who do powerful and fulfilling work. Our inclusive and supportive 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, throughout 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!

I understand that if I am made an offer of employment, it will be conditioned on my demonstration I am fully vaccinated OR I plan to initiate vaccination by my start date AND be fully vaccinated within 4 weeks of start date against the COVID-19 virus.

However, in the event that I successfully obtain an exemption, I understand that it is highly unlikely that I will be able to adequately perform the essential functions of this position without imposing an undue hardship on Syneos Health due to the clients’ demands.
