I'll be working at a smaller MM/larger boutique in Healthcare/Life Sciences. I come from a science background, but I was wondering what should I do to prepare for the internship. Should I take an online financial modeling course? Any books that I should read? The internship is set up in a way that the MD said I should be getting to work on a few deals in various stages any advice?

You WILL be working? If they know that you don't have a finance background, look around some vault guides and some free material- but it sounds like they expect to teach you material on the job.

Went from a poetry major to finance... funny how life works isn't it?
