M.D./M.B.A. Dual Degree

Students applying for the M.D./M.B.A. program must have earned a bachelor's degree. A student must apply and be admitted to the College of Medicine and Life Sciences and the John B. and Lillian E. Neff College of Business and Innovation separately to be admitted to the M.D./M.B.A dual degree program. The MCAT will be accepted by the College of Business and Innovation in lieu of GMAT scores.

Admission to one program does not guarantee admission to the other program. Refer to the College of Medicine and M.B.A. sections of this catalog for specific admission standards for each program. Applications for admission to the M.D. program are accepted for fall entry only.

It is recommended that M.D./M.B.A. students take 2 of the 3 Medical School courses below to serve as M.B.A. electives. PCOM 785​ is already part of the MD curriculum will serve to fulfill two of the three elective requirements when taken over multiple semesters for the required number of credit hours when a satisfactory grade is earned.

Another option is for M.D. /M.B.A. students to complete 1 of the 3 Medical School courses listed above, along with 1 elective from the list below. The courses below are semester long courses (subject to availability) and cannot be taken during a medial student's required clerkship or clinical elective time. The course would have to be taken during the dedicated year of M.B.A. study (typically the 3rd year of the M.D./M.B.A. program). 

This option does allow M.D./M.B.A. students the opportunity to fulfill the 4 week basic science elective required for medical school. Students should consult with their M.D. and M.B.A. Academic Advisors to determine the best approach for completing the dual degree based on their academic background and individual plan of study.
