Oncology Massage Internship
Where high tech meets high touch
Cancer care at Boston Medical Center is a comprehensive and centralized service expressly designed for high quality care, comfort, and privacy. This places Boston Medical Center among the best, most advanced, and most integrated cancer care facilities in all of New England. Everyone works with one ultimate goal in mind—to treat every patient with dignity and compassion.
The Oncology Massage Internship started in 2008 through the support of the Muscular Therapy Foundation. The mission of the Oncology Massage Internship is to provide licensed massage therapists with the knowledge and skills to provide therapeutic massage to cancer patients safely and effectively. Interns gain experience providing gentle massage in the oncology setting. Our program is an intensive internship that includes didactic and hands-on training with cancer patients.
