I am currently studying medicine but am considering a switch to MC. I was wondering whether there are ane firms where such a background would give me an advantage? Also, how much travelling is there in MC? Does it var from firm to firm? Thanks

Parma to moody (#1)

Variation is mainly influenced by the sector/function you consult in, more than by individual firm culture. Although high travel and client-site working is still the norm in U.S. and in some I.T. consulting, many firms in London will have you based in or near to the office 50%+ of the time because most clients are so close at hand.

In terms of consulting firms favouring medics, there are opportunities in healthcare and "pharmaceutical" practices within many larger consultancy firms (Deloitte, Accenture, IBM, PA, etc.). Mainly projects cover NHS and DH consulting. However, for your medical qualifications to give you an advantage in consulting, you'd normally need some experience as well. Otherwise, you could always apply as a standard graduate and specialise later.

Atos Origin have been specifically recruiting recent medical graduates for their medical services practice recently and may still be doing so.

The Atos Med Services group doesn't have anything to do with consulting. They are the biggest non-NHS employer of medical staff in the UK though...

I'd imagine that you've got pretty sound academics. Most of the big firms would be interested in talking to you on that basis alone. Specialising in Pharma would be a sensible idea.

Would having a medical degree from Oxford have any significant benefit as compared to a degree from elsewhere if I was going for 'medical consulting', also would a BA in Medical Sciences be of any benefit?

BCG to moody (#4)

I work at BCG. A few of my colleagues are from a medical background. Oxbridge does help.

Good luck !
