Internship Program | Overview
The Pediatric Anesthesia Clinical and Research Internship (@PACaRI) at Boston Children's Hospital (BCH) was established in 2010 to close that gap for prospective medical and healthcare-allied students. By offering high-quality mentorship, and unparalleled hands-on learning and research opportunities, @PACaRI provides exposure to the realities of medical practice and helps students decide whether a medical career aligns with their interests, aptitudes, and values.
Summer PACaRI 2024 no longer accepts new students. Please reach back in Fall for Summer PACaRI 2025.
