Welcoming our first intern to newly launched internship program in the US.


Porterhouse Medical Group is delighted to welcome our first US-based intern Sofia Bae to our newly launched internship program, Porterhouse Pathfinders US.

The Internship Program

Porterhouse Pathfinders is a 12-week internship for bright, enthusiastic life-sciences graduates with a passion for science and communication. We first started the program in the UK 11 years ago – the thinking at that time was that an internship programme would allow our agency to ‘test drive’ talent, while giving candidates the opportunity to develop skills, make connections and gain valuable experience, in all of the different functions within our multidisciplinary agency.

Over the years, the program has been developed and refined, and we now work with and colleges, providing valuable hands-on experience to support students and graduates both sides of the pond.

It is an exciting time for Porterhouse in the US; the agency is experiencing rapid growth with new clients and projects, and we are delighted to be able to offer this program to US-based candidates.

Welcome to the team Sofia!

Julia Van Diver, Vice President of Scientific Services says;

‘We are thrilled to welcome Sofia to our growing US team. Sofia comes to us with a degree in History of Science from Harvard University, and a minor in computer science. She has been long interested in a career in medical writing and this is an exciting time for her to experience all aspects of medical communications. We are sure she will fit right in and gain valuable experience from the internship.’

Jan Coetzee, our talent manager, says: “We ensure that our interns gain a lot from their time at Porterhouse. The program also increases awareness of the potential career options within medical communications and of the industry itself, as many applicants for scientific and client services  roles have never heard of medical communications before looking for an internship.”
