The Future of the Industry Depends on Knowledge
The dual MBA/MD program is designed for those who seek to develop a solid understanding of business administration with a focus on being doctors of medicine. The program will provide students with the needed skills, knowledge, and tools to become visionary and creative doctors with strong competency in business management.
Overall, the curriculum is community-focused, but places great importance on relationships through faculty to student mentorship, extensive experience with health care professionals in the delivery of primary care and longitudinal patient-centered care, in addition to immersion in community service projects and initiatives. Students will directly apply their learning in the service of others, providing compassionate care in collaboration with many other health professionals including: physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, dentists, physical therapists, social workers, occupational therapists, and other community practitioners in the pursuit of providing the best patient.
The dual MBA/MD program is open to graduates from all undergraduate disciplines. You are required to have a bachelor's degree from an accredited four-year institution in the United States, or proof of equivalent training at an international college or university.
