Practicing medicine can be fulfilling, emotional work. As a physician, you establish relationships with individuals and often see your influence immediately. Performing a difficult surgery, diagnosing a disease accurately, or giving hope to patients and their families can bring tremendous satisfaction.
McKinsey offers a different kind of satisfaction. Rather than influencing one patient at a time, you can help shape the systems and strategies that have much broader impact. We help our clients tackle some of their toughest problems. As a consultant, you have the potential to help shape the way healthcare decisions are made–decisions that influence the care of thousands or even millions of patients.
Additionally, McKinsey MDs enjoy the opportunity for learning and personal development. Through the combination of diverse, challenging client work, high-quality training programs, and one-on-one apprenticeship, McKinsey creates an unparalleled learning environment that most McKinsey MDs value greatly.
Finally, McKinsey MDs greatly enjoy their colleagues–McKinsey is a diverse, talented, and engaging group of people who do their best work as part of a team.
