International Patient Services

Pediatric international patient with thank you card for staff

We welcome patients from all over the globe who need advanced treatment and specialized expertise that is not available at home. Our staff who specialize in international patients can guide you through the process of becoming a patient and travelling to Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s.

All international patients are assigned a case coordinator to assist with logistical and financial considerations related to becoming a patient and receiving treatment here. Our staff strive to meet the cultural, dietary, and religious needs of patients of all backgrounds.
