Intellectually curious students looking to expand and develop their interest in life sciences and business.
Associate Consultant Intern
Build your knowledge and professional skill set through an immersive experience in life sciences consulting.
Clarion’s 10-week summer internship program presents a unique opportunity to experience healthcare consulting from the front lines. After initial training to build and expand core consulting skills, interns are staffed on client case teams for the remainder of the internship program. This immersive model allows interns to develop analytic, strategic, and communication capabilities in the context of actual casework.
Interns can expect to interact with managing directors and principals frequently, exposing them to a wealth of knowledge and experience.
The rigorous and challenging nature of our work is balanced by our welcoming and collegial culture. We are located in the heart of downtown, providing direct access to Boston’s unparalleled biotech industry, and engaging city life.
The application for the 2021 summer internship is now closed. Check back in the fall for a timeline for our 2022 application process.
An immersive experience in life sciences consulting
Clarion summer interns are fully staffed on client case teams from week two of the program, allowing them to experience the work flow, level of collaboration, and project progression at Clarion. Moreover, interns are contributing team members who help shape the content and direction of the project through their supervised data analysis, presentation building, and more.
Dynamic professional development & training
Professional development is continuous over the course of the summer, through both formal modules and informal training specific to case work. During week one, consultants from all levels of the company will introduce interns to the basic skills required of an associate. Exposure to senior members of the firm will continue throughout the summer, providing opportunities to learn from their extensive experience.
At Clarion, we value mentorship at all levels. Each intern is assigned a mentor for the summer, who will serve as an invaluable resource throughout the internship and beyond. Clarion encourages interns to take advantage of this opportunity to learn about firm culture, career progression, and navigating Boston.
Close, collaborative, and exciting environment
One of Clarion’s core values is collaboration, and we work hard to foster a welcoming environment for anyone who joins our family. Interns will experience this supportive community first-hand through case work and regular events throughout the summer meant to bring the company together in a less formal setting.
What We’re Looking For
Clarion seeks intellectually curious, highly analytical, team-oriented contributors. Strong candidates are passionate individuals who are eager to roll up their sleeves and help life sciences companies address their most important strategic challenges.
Our interns demonstrate a drive to learn more about life sciences consulting and an interest in logical, creative problem-solving in a highly collaborative setting.
Our summer program is open to students who would be entering the final year of their undergraduate or Master’s degree program (e.g., BA, BS, MEM, MPH) after completing the internship at Clarion.
