Pathfinder Health

Research Internship

Health Pathfinder, an emerging healthcare startup that aims to revolutionize how children with developmental disorders access and receive care. We are working closely with leading pediatric hospitals and research centers to increase access to world-class care. To us, healthcare should be accessible by all, regardless of where they live or socio-economic status. Today, properly diagnosing and beginning care for autism and other developmental delay conditions take an average of two years – Pathfinder’s care models aim to bring that down to two months. Come join us in revolutionizing pediatric healthcare.

We are offering an internship to a motivated entrepreneur, product manager, or researcher. We are developing our product suite and need help in building our business and technical requirements. In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to write business strategy documents, deep-dive clinical and market research, conduct user surveys, build and execute operational roadmaps, and more. You get the opportunity to see a company be built from the ground up, directly influencing its strategy while working beside co-founders who have decades of experience at Children’s Hospital Boston, Amazon, Boeing, Morgan Stanley, and several leading healthcare companies.

Timing: Must be able to dedicate 10 hours or more a week. Hours are flexible but need to be aligned with PST time zone. Internship period is from X to Y.
