Healthcare today is radically changing. The changes are transforming how medicine understands and treats disease, how healthcare players strategically operate in an increasingly competitive environment, and how patients are beginning to view their roles as consumers of their own healthcare. As players in the health industry continue to face difficult choices, consulting firms are looking to hire students interested in pioneering new concepts and formulating novel business strategies. Their clients include companies that discover, manufacture, commercialize and distribute novel treatments while others pay and provide the needed care. Healthcare consulting is a good fit for those students who want to play an integral role in this environment and indeed, consulting is a natural transition from the GPHM program.
