In collaboration with the Baylor College of Medicine, the business school offers the MD/MBA dual degree program for candidates seeking to integrate business knowledge with expertise in medical schools, physician groups, hospitals and managed care organizations.

The U.S. health care industry faces many challenges such as sky-rocketing costs, increasing demand, inadequate access to health care, inefficiency, inconsistent quality of services, non-uniform processes and more. Increasingly complex changes in the health care and life sciences industries require physicians to take on leadership roles in nontraditional capacities. You could be a part of the solution.

Read about one of our MD/MBA alumna and the Association of American Medical Colleges' current take on the dual degree.

The dual degree requirements are completed in five years.
