MD/MBA Combined Degree Program
The healthcare and life sciences sector demands a new generation of professionals who can address the innovations transforming this $8-trillion global industry. The MD/MBA combined degree program is designed for a select group of medical students with leadership potential and an appetite for driving change.
Combining a medical degree with an MBA will give you the knowledge, agility, and confidence you need to tackle the transformations facing the industry, in both the public and private sectors.
The impact of this combined degree on your career potential extends well beyond coursework. The program will challenge you to push your limits, expand your creativity and focus your critical thinking and decision-making skills to prepare you for significant leadership opportunities throughout your career.
The MD/MBA program is designed such that the requirements can be completed in five years rather than the six years it would take to acquire the MD and MBA degrees independently. Students begin the combined degree program in the Faculty of Medicine and spend the first three years in the MD program.
Successful applicants enter the first year of the Full-Time MBA program in September of their fourth year, leaving the MD program for 12 months. In the fifth-year students return to the MD program for the Fall term. The Winter term of the fifth year offers a combination of coursework and electives from both programs.
