About the Department of Communications and Marketing

Since our founding in 1947, Dana-Farber has been committed to providing adults and children with cancer and blood disorders with the best treatment available today, while developing tomorrow's cures through cutting-edge research.

Dana-Farber's Communications and Marketing department performs many of the functions of a full-service, in-house communications and marketing agency — for which we have won numerous awards from the New England Society for Healthcare Communications, the Publicity Club of New England, Women in Communications, and others.

We use our communications and marketing expertise to support Dana-Farber's fight against cancer by:

  • Building awareness of, and support for, the Institute's life-saving mission
  • Providing marketing and communications services for Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center and Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center
  • Enhancing communication with patients and families
  • Helping employees work more effectively

Interns have the opportunity to be part of one of the most active communications and marketing departments in our area and make a difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families.

Our Communications and Marketing Internship Experience



"I just accepted a position with the Los Angeles Chargers. I am going to be their year-long intern for video production and fan experience, and I couldn't be more excited! I cannot thank you enough times for hiring me as your intern and helping me create an amazing project last summer."

"The work I did as a media relations intern was not only relevant and engaging, but it gave me great experience that I know will set me apart professionally. My time at Dana-Farber showed me the joy of non-profit, intentional work, and I am so grateful I was able to share patient stories and advocate for this amazing institution."



"My time at Dana-Farber was invaluable. I truly felt my skills progressed each time I came into the office. From curating media lists to becoming extremely familiar with pitching local reporters, these are skills I hope to carry with me for the rest of my career. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to intern at such a special place."
