My first post on Top Consultant.
I'm in my mid-twenties and have a dentistry degree and a masters degree in public health. I'm looking at sidestepping into healthcare consulting. There are a lot of skills that I think you guys have which are important and relevant to public health, and I fancy a change in career given how current prospects are.
My understanding is that there are three big organisations, McKinsey, BCG and Bain and the two former firms definitely do some healthcare consultancy. Then there are four and five financial/accountancy firms which do some consultancy PwC, Delotte KPMG etc.
I was wondering if there is a specific websites or books I should read to get a bit more insight into the work. I wouldn't be thinking about applying will next year Autumn so I have time. I've been told that I definitely need to train myself in a methodology to approach cases by that point.
Is it also appropriate if I research and reach out to people who work for the companies? Should I be speaking to Analysts? Consultants? Directors?
