Consulting opportunities for physicians

There's a company out there called Concentra and they have a list of "National Medical Consultants." Who are these people? What do they do? What does it mean to be a medical consultant?

Here's a short snippet from their website:
If you have medical oversight needs, Concentra’s physicians are available to help on a consulting basis. You’ll have access to a wealth of expertise and experience among the physicians who oversee our medical operations. The same physicians who have helped Concentra grow into one of the nation’s leading health care companies.
OK, I realize that doesn't provide enough information if you don't know anything about Concentra, so let's take a look at the company. Let's go to the "About Us" section. Here's what it says:

Concentra is a national health care company focused on improving America’s health, one patient at a time. We offer comprehensive services to injured/ill patients and their employers through our nationwide network of medical centers.

National Reach…
  • We have more than 300 medical centers in 40 states that provide occupational medicine, urgent care, physical therapy, and wellness services in one location.
  • We also operate more than 240 workplace health clinics that provide a range of health and wellness services such as athletic training programs, health screenings, vaccinations, medical advisory services, etc.
Personalized Care…
  • We help employers encourage the health and wellness of their employees through a program called TotalCare, which blends primary, preventive, occupational, and environmental health.
  • Our philosophy is that the best approach to addressing the American health care crisis is to balance the well-being of employees with the well-being of employers.
Focused on You…
  • Concentra provides health care services to more than 30,000 patients each day. We intend to redefine the patient experience by treating individuals with welcoming, respectful, and skillful care.
Actually, there's probably no way I can summarize this company in a single blog post because they offer so many different types of services. However, the point I'm making is that there are consulting opportunities for physicians who have an interest in providing clinical expertise to a variety of clients ranging from patients to employers. Concentra is one example of a company that provides physicians with consulting opportunities. There are other companies out there. Some physician provide consulting services independently.
