Health Care Consultants

Advancement Prospects

Most entry-level consulting workers at large firms are typically known as associates for the first couple of years. After gaining three to five years of experience, an associate may be promoted to a supervisory position where he or she will handle more complex and independent work. Promotion to junior partner (or principal) may occur after seven years or more of exceptional work experience. Those promoted to partner have a financial stake in the firm and managerial duties. Health care consultants who work for hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, and government agencies typically move up the promotion ladder to managerial positions. Some may become top executives. Some consultants advance by opening their own firms and charging higher rates to clients.
