Dual Degree Programs

M.D./M.B.A.

The M.D./M.B.A. Program is a five-year program offered in conjunction with the McDonough School of Business.  Applicants must submit TWO separate applications - one to the M.D. Program and one to the M.B.A. Program.   All applicants will be required to satisfy the appropriate admission requirements and application deadlines for the MD and MBA programs. The School of Medicine requires each applicant to interview at the School. The School of Business also requires an interview for admission.  Individuals who receive acceptances from both programs may elect to enroll in the dual-degree program.  

Given the complexities of both schools’ curriculum, a student who is interested in pursuing the dual MD/MBA program must be accepted to and claim participation in writing to both programs in the dual degree program by August 1st of the year of matriculation to medical school.  No exceptions will be made to this deadline to ensure the curricular integrity of both degree programs.  Upon matriculation, students will be counseled and advised jointly by the School of Medicine and the Business School on the MBA requirements to be completed during the first two years of medical school in order to meet the degree requirements of both programs in five years.  Upon acceptance, students should contact Cameron Jones, Associate Dean for Student Affairs, to set up a joint meeting with the Business School to begin scheduling M.B.A. elective requirements as soon as possible.

The MPH is a degree program that provides integrated training in the core competencies of the field of public health, preparing graduates to address and solve current or emerging public health challenges through multidisciplinary approaches that apply the latest scientific knowledge, common sense and teamwork. Students in the program will obtain a population-based perspective on health, along with rigorous training in a schoolwide curriculum focused on the core disciplines of epidemiology, biostatistics, management sciences and the environmental, biological, behavioral and social factors that influence the health of populations and communities.
