The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland is delighted to partner with Professional Services firm PwC to offer two trainees in Higher Specialist Training the opportunity to work full-time for a one-year period as a management consultant to gain practical business and management experience in a healthcare context.
The RCPI supports the role of clinicians playing a leading role in leading the design and delivery of our health service. We believe that this can be served by ensuring that doctors have the opportunity to gain experience in management and organisation change programmes. The aim of this innovative programme is to provide trainees, who are intending to remain in clinical medicine, an opportunity to gain valuable experience of the management and business environments. This will most likely be in a healthcare context.
Working as a management consultant, you will gain experience helping organisations to improve their performance by developing strategies, implementing new technologies or processes and managing change. You will learn new skills, methodologies and frameworks to identify problems and develop recommendations for more effective or efficient ways of working.
Applications close at 5pm on 16 February. We welcome applications from those commencing their penultimate or final year Higher Specialist Training in July 2021. The Fellowship opportunity is not open to anyone who is due to complete prior to July 2021.
