||The MD/MBA program targets a select group of medical students who recognize the value of combining medical studies with management skills and expertise. The combined degree program develops physician managers capable of pursuing careers that balance clinical care with managing change in a healthcare environment. Graduates will have the ability to pursue careers in a wide range of healthcare areas, from the small clinics to large tertiary healthcare facilities.
The combined program combines the four-year Doctor of Medicine degree with the Master of Business Administration degree. The combined degree program requires five years of study. Upon successful completion of the combined program, graduates will receive both an MBA and MD degree at the conclusion of the five-year period. There are no changes to the MD degree requirements other than adding an extra year to the overall requirements and allowing a break between the pre-clinical and clinical years (between year two and year three) of medical studies to allow the student to complete the requirements for the MBA. The MBA requirements are 42 credits.
