College Internship & Co-op Program
We recruit students from colleges and universities across the country to participate in three- or six-month-long assignments spanning all departments at Blueprint. Our program is designed for students to learn about a specific area of our business, as well as our industry more broadly, from early research to commercialization of a drug. We value our relationships with universities and programs like Project Onramp to bring talented students into the Blue Crew.
Application Timeline: Applications for summer internship positions typically open around February, and semester co-op applications follow our partner university timelines. During this time, check your school’s job board or learn about open positions here.
"Interns and co-op students add tremendous value to the Blueprint Medicines community. They bring fresh perspectives directly from the classroom that help us think through challenges and drive toward our goal of improving and extending life for as many people as possible."
Associate Director, Early Career Programs
I am originally from Plymouth, Massachusetts and found a community during my internship experience. I joined Blueprint Medicines as a Pharmacology Intern in 2019 as I worked toward a Bachelor of Science in Biology at Boston University. As a Pharmacology Intern, I learned key in-vivo skills while supporting pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics (PK/PD) studies. Now, I am a Senior Research Associate in Biology, supporting our KIT franchise by overseeing the screening of compounds through in-vitro assays. Outside of work, I enjoy art and dancing.
After learning about Blueprint through a university career portal, the internship program quickly became my top choice. It’s rare to find opportunities for undergraduates looking to gain in-industry pharmacology and in-vivo experience. I gained very valuable mentors who I look up to and have inspired me to continue in this field. My internship served as a great opportunity to meet other scientists who have already travelled down a similar career path or are still exploring the field.
My Blueprint Medicines:
Joining a structured internship program highlighted Blueprint’s dedication as a company to nurturing upcoming talent. Even after one week, it became clear that Blueprint’s culture fosters a collaboration-centered community and invests in the professional growth of its people.
My greatest achievement:
Gaining the confidence to execute in-vivo techniques independently. My mentors taught me that with enough patience and careful guidance, you can truly master any skill.
You won’t know an outcome unless you try. It’s easy to doubt yourself during an internship application process or be intimidated by a new experience. The best thing you can do for yourself is take on these challenges. As an intern, I always hesitated to introduce myself or even ask others for help. Coming out of my internship experience, I learned that there’s no better way to achieve your goals than stepping outside of your comfort zone and forging your own path.

Director, Clinical Science & Pharm.D. Fellowship Director
I am from Maryland and attended the University of Maryland to receive my Bachelor of Science degrees in Biochemistry and Finance and my Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.). I joined Blueprint Medicines as a two-year Global Medical Affairs post-doctorate fellow. Now, I work at Blueprint as Senior Manager of Scientific Communications, creating research-based scientific content, strategy and messaging around Blueprint’s approved products and precision therapy pipeline for our medical science liaisons. Outside of work, I enjoy volunteering in the community, playing chess and partaking in sports such as rock climbing, swimming and kickboxing.
The leadership, networking and professional development opportunities that the Blueprint post-doctorate fellowship provides are unparalleled. Not only has this experience provided me deep expertise in oncology and rare diseases, but it has also offered me the unique experience to work alongside some of the most brilliant industry leaders and form meaningful partnerships with them. It has been supremely rewarding and humbling to be part of Blueprint’s team as we take an “all hands on deck” approach to ensure we can successfully bring precision therapies to market for patients in need.
My Blueprint Medicines:
As a smaller company, Blueprint Medicines gave me the opportunity to lead projects, grow professionally and be part of team efforts. I pursued a full-time role with Blueprint because I value the projects I worked on during my fellowship, and I can continue projects that grow my leadership and research skills. I’ve enjoyed working alongside many like-minded individuals who are passionate, driven and working with a sense of urgency. The Blue Crew inspires me and keeps me motivated to succeed at Blueprint.
My greatest achievement:
I worked as a fellow on the Medical Affairs team during U.S. and EU product launches. During this time, I helped train our Medical and Commercial field teams on the disease state, built medical information content for U.S. and EU healthcare professionals, and supported our presence at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) and American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) annual meetings, our first key congresses post-approvals.
Be patient, have clear goals and talk to as many people as possible. Setting tangible goals and interacting with others will give you a better understanding of your desired career path and help you build your network.

I am originally from Brazil and graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Political Science. I started at Blueprint Medicines in the Fall of 2019 as a Business Operations Fellow. Now, I am a Communications Specialist working on the Corporate Affairs team. In my free time, I enjoy cooking and hiking.
The Business Operations Fellowship gave me an opportunity to explore my career options, gain exposure to different areas of the biotechnology industry and contribute to Blueprint’s goal of making a positive impact on patients’ lives.
My Blueprint Medicines:
In my search for a fulfilling career, it stood out to me that Blueprint puts patients first in everything we do. The most important question is always, “How will this impact patients?” Everyone lives by our core values each day, which makes the culture very special.
My greatest achievement:
During my fellowship, my biggest achievement was working with our Patient Advocacy team to educate employees on how to incorporate the patient voice into their everyday work.
Stay open-minded. There is so much to learn, and you will discover so much about yourself and what you enjoy if you give everything a chance.
