As a physician, your influence and impact on each patient in your care can bring tremendous satisfaction. But many medical candidates are attracted to BCG because they want to have a different kind of impact; they want to challenge themselves intellectually to understand and solve some of the most complex business issues, influencing and impacting a broader audience.
At BCG, we help our clients tackle some of their toughest problems. One commonality among all medical candidates who join BCG is their innate passion for problem solving and their desire to have an impact on the health care industry on a broader level. Regardless of the type of project you’re working on, you will apply your analytical and problem-solving skills to a wide range of client issues. Your career in consulting will give you exposure to the broader health care system, beyond the specific patient care you were trained to practice.
At BCG, we attract medical candidates from various stages in their medical training—from those who join us right out of medical school to physicians who have been practicing for years. Many of the same attributes and skills that have allowed you to succeed in medicine are essential in consulting. Like physicians, consultants must be good with people, intellectually curious, creative, and analytically skilled. As a medical candidate, you bring not only relevant skills but also a unique perspective that allows you to approach problems in a way that provides tremendous value to our clients. From day one, we support you and provide the training you need to succeed as a consultant.
