MD/MBA Combined Programs: Why the sudden increase & What you should know about them!

There's been a recent proliferation of dual degree programs- MD/MBA, MD/MPH, MD/PhD (or do we call that going to a bar in Cambridge?). In fact, a recent student conducted by students at Harvard University found there has been a 25% increase in MD/MBA programs between 2011 and 2012. 

In her MedTech Boston interview, the lead author, Riya Goal tells us, "The main goal of the research was to establish a comprehensive landscape snapshot of the MD/MBA dual degree programs in the US. Currently, there is no database out there for current students or program directors looking to find more information. We actually realized that no two curricula are alike, but having different curricula doesn't seem to impact the landscape."

The full poster, "Survey of MD/MBA Programs: Opportunities for Physician Management Education," was published in Academic Medicine, October 21, 2014. You can find it here

The lead authors, Riya Goyal and Khin-Kyemon Aung, are available to answer any and all questions related to MD/MBA Programs for the next 2 weeks.
