Students have the opportunity to obtain a Doctor of Medicine (MD) and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) through a coordinated dual degree program offered by the School of Medicine and the Heider College of Business. This dual degree program pairs the traditional medical curriculum with a MBA degree. The MBA degree is largely completed during a sabbatical year from medical school. Students in the program complete the MBA curriculum as full-time students between the M2 and M3 years of medical school. This degree program provides students with additional career opportunities as administrators and executives in health-care related fields. It will also help MDs in large and small practices perform business-related functions more effectively and with a deeper level of understanding.
For additional information please review the Dual-Degree Programs Policy within the MD Student Handbook.
