How to Become an Auditor


While some skills may come more easily to some people than others, healthcare auditors must be developed. Even the most talented healthcare staff won’t be successful if he or she is expected to jump into an audit role unprepared. When new auditors struggle, it is often a result of underdevelopment, not lack of talent or potential. And new auditor development must start long before a staff is poised to step into a new job! Having a process in place to develop new auditors and train them as they transition into their new roles ensures not only the success of the auditor, but of the auditing process.
