Allied Health Careers

Allied Health professionals are eager to work at Brigham and Women's Hospital. They know BWH has the region’s best opportunities, especially for those who want to advance quickly. 

Respiratory Therapy

The Respiratory Care Department prides itself on being directly involved in all areas of the hospital, particularly in our intensive care units. Our Critical Care Therapists play a leading role in managing patients who receive mechanical ventilation support. Our Adult Therapists work on all patient care units, and respond to emergencies throughout the hospital. Our Neonatal Respiratory Therapists work in our Level III Nursery. They manage patients who are using conventional ventilation modes, as well as high-frequency ventilation and nitric oxide. Our NICU Respiratory Therapists attend all high-risk deliveries and are involved in research studies, such as delivery room management of the newborn and the remote diagnosis and treatment of patients being transported.

Pharmacy

Our Pharmacy department is a national leader in clinical pharmacy services and in developing some of the world’s most advanced medical information technology. Our pharmacists practice directly on the patient care units and are responsible for achieving high quality, safe, and cost-effective drug therapy, while improving patient outcomes.

BWH pharmacists participate in patient care rounds and provide training and mentoring for clinical pharmacy students and residents. Our pharmacy staff practices in a technology-driven environment, using state-of-the-art clinical computer systems, web-based drug information resources, bar code scanning, electronic Medication Administration Records (eMAR), smart pump technology and wireless computer networks. Come see how we stay ahead of the curve!

Nutrition Services

The Department of Nutrition is a highly respected part of our comprehensive medical team, since nutrition is critical to an integrated treatment plan.

Our in-patient dietitians are actively involved in the management of all TPN and tube feed patients. They attend daily work rounds as well as weekly Metabolic Support Service patient care rounds.

Our outpatient dietitians counsel patients who attend a variety of clinics – thoracic, radiation oncology and GI. These dietitians give presentations throughout the community and they also lead weight loss support groups.

Dietitians at BWH have many opportunities for continuing education, such as bimonthly Metabolic Support teaching rounds and monthly Longwood Nutrition Rounds. This helps them keep abreast of the latest advances in medical nutrition therapy.

Radiation Oncology

The Department of Radiation Oncology at the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center is a world-class leader in the treatment of cancer patients. We offer patients meticulously planned and delivered radiation therapy, as well as personal and supportive care. We are committed to improving treatment and research for cancer patients through our team approach to patient- and family-centered care.

Social Work Services

At Brigham and Women's Hospital, Social Work is a crucial part of our high quality medical care. As patients and their families go though diagnosis, treatment and recovery, social workers are there to meet their social and emotional needs.

The social worker’s role is a versatile one, involving psychosocial assessments, crisis intervention, education, consultation, counseling, support groups and information/referral to community services.

Social work services are respectful of patient rights, evaluated for improvement, and responsive to other care providers.

Rehabilitation Services

At Brigham and Women's Hospital, The Department of Rehabilitation Services includes Physical, Occupational, and Language Pathology Therapists. They provide comprehensive care at our in-patient environment, as well as at our outpatient centers.

Our department offers a supportive workplace, where therapists can advance through a unique career-laddering program, based on their learning and development.

This is a stimulating and challenging atmosphere, where you work directly with patients recovering from different conditions – patients you won't see at most other hospitals. You’ll be part of a close-knit team of other therapists, nurses, and physicians, collaborating together for the entire course of treatment. At Brigham and Women's Hospital, you're not only important to the continuum of care – you're essential to its success.

Women's Health

The Mary Horrigan Connors Center for Women and Newborns at BWH is one of the region’s most sophisticated hospitals – providing women with unparalleled care in gynecology, gynecologic oncology, high-risk and critical care obstetrics, mother/baby care, and labor and delivery services.

Founded in 1832 as the first women's hospital in the nation, the CWN has pioneered breakthrough after breakthrough. Our staff not only works with some of the most challenging patients, but also with some of the most brilliant minds in health care.

As an equal opportunity employer, Brigham & Women's Hospital is also committed to a diverse workforce.
