Job Description for Clinical Consultant
The treatment and care of patients is the top priority at any health care facility, and a lot goes on behind-the-scenes to ensure that proper patient care is provided. Clinical consultants are responsible for some of those background processes, as they work closely with both health care providers and outside vendors and take a proactive approach to improving and streamlining their facility's financial operations. They may be employed full-time, but part-time employment is somewhat more common.Read More...
Clinical consultants work closely with their health care facility and review their finances and general practices. They also work with the facility's agents to identify opportunities for growth and areas of improvement, as well as develop strategies to take advantage of these opportunities to reduce waste, improve cash flow, and maximize worker efficiency and health care quality. These consultants often draft reports and then work with facility agents to work out how to best implement necessary changes.
A bachelor's degree in management, health care, economics, or a related field is generally required for the position, though a master's degree is often preferred. Aspiring clinical consultants should consider seeking Certified Management Consultant certification, offered through the Institute of Management Consultants USA; this certification must be renewed every three years.
