As a consultant you will serve as a subject matter expert (SME) on clinical, educational, administrative issues and provide leadership across a range of contexts that contribute to organizational outcomes. You will work with staff throughout the healthcare system to develop corrective action plans which address deficiencies in practice and opportunities for improvement. Consultants are involved in education, development of practice, leading practice change and research. Use clinical knowledge to evaluate the quality and effectiveness of clinical performance within the facility, using data collected by internal/external monitoring processes and relay this information to clinical leadership and senior leaders. Facilitate recommendations for systems and/or resource changes that will serve to improve the work force and resource utilization. Play a critical support role in developing and coordinating internal review systems to assure that both clinical and administrative activities follow agency accrediting and regulatory requirements. Possess a thorough working knowledge of the directives, policies, and performance standards of the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) and of the Department of Veterans.

You must be poised and articulate in communicating with people of varied educational levels and varied ethnic backgrounds. You must demonstrate willingness to work cooperatively as a member of a team in all assignments.
