Health Care Consultants

Work Environment

The life of a health care consultant is filled with long hours (about 30 percent of consultants work more than 40 hours per week), frequent travel to the offices of clients, and the stress of meeting deadlines and fulfilling the expectations of clients who desire a big bang for the big bucks that they’re shelling out for the consultant’s expertise. On the other hand, many health care consultants take pride in helping clients deliver better health care service or solving challenging problems. They also cite other pluses to this career such as the opportunity to work with smart, driven colleagues; good pay and benefits; flexibility regarding work schedule; and the variety of work duties. National publications are taking notice of a career in health care consulting. In 2015, CNNMoney selected the career of health care consultant as one of the best jobs in America based on its combination of quality of life, high pay, and job growth.
