MD/MBA

The University of Miami School of Business offers a joint MD/MBA degree program in partnership with the University’s Miller School of Medicine. The business curriculum prepares future physicians for the business complexities related to running a private medical practice or heading a group practice, and prepares medical students for careers in health sector management, leadership and policy.

The MD/MBA program adds an additional year to the four-year medical school curriculum. The MBA coursework ranges from financial reporting and corporate strategy to the legal aspects of health administration.

MD/MBA candidates have the option of choosing a Research Track (project based which provides practical hands on experience) or an Elective Track (provides business electives).  Please refer to the curriculum for details.

MD students are eligible to apply to the MD/MBA program during their 3rd year of Medical School and will be required to submit a Full-Time MBA online application and the GMAT to be considered for the program.

To obtain detailed program admission information, please reference the program brochure which can be requested by contacting the Office of Recruiting and Admissions at 305-284-2510 or visit our website.
