MD/MBA Program

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, preparing 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).

Helping Physicians Succeed

Navigating the Business of Health Care

“As the health care industry evolves, physicians are not only joining large, multi-million-dollar practices, they’re running these organizations," says Steve Ullmann (pictured right), chair and professor of health sector management and policy at the School of Business. "Today’s doctors must understand how to negotiate contracts with pharmaceutical companies and medical suppliers, navigate through the Medicare and Medicaid systems, negotiate with managed care companies and hospitals, understand pricing and financing, and develop effective marketing programs for their services.”
