About the Position:

Strategic Research Analysts work in teams on custom research engagements to address key challenges or opportunities facing specific hospital members.  Building on the Advisory Board’s vast knowledge and expertise, engagement teams provide strategic guidance to directly support hospital decision-making.  Recent engagements have focused on the following topics: evaluating market differentiation tactics for cardiac surgery, defining programmatic growth platforms for stroke care, crafting a strategic vision for a digestive health center, designing a framework to better conceptualize cancer care pathways, and launching a revenue growth strategy for orthopedic services.  Analysts are actively involved throughout the engagement cycle—from conception, to research interviews, to analysis and creation of presentation materials.
