LIfe Sciences Boutiques?

Hi guys, I am a med student with healthcare / biotech / public health background looking to transition into consulting. Med school was not my thing. I have searched around on the forums and could not find a similar thread. I would much appreciate a list of boutique consultancies specializing in life sciences. Thanks.
