Health professional schools look for applicants who have differentiated themselves. Participating in one or more co-ops is an outstanding way to gain unique experience. There are co-op positions in Boston’s leading teaching hospitals, research institutions, biotech, industry, and community health centers. PreHealth students participate in a wide variety of co-op options, including bench research, clinical research, and hands on patient care. Co-op can also be an opportunity to explore a different area of interest, for example working in the Financial District, a political office, marine sciences, pursuing an interest in music or art, or learning about a different culture by traveling internationally. There isn’t any specific co-op that prehealth students should complete. Rather, choose positions that engage and inspire you!
Please contact your co-op advisor, who will help you find co-op positions that are consistent with your career goals and qualifications.
