University of Miami 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, 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.
Questions about the MD portion of the program should be directed to: Alex J. Mechaber, MD, FACP, Senior Associate Dean for Undergraduate Medical Education, Associate Professor of Medicine, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, firstname.lastname@example.org . Questions about the MBA portion should be directed to Admission Advisors at the School of Business Administration, 305-284-2510 or email@example.com

The application deadline for this program is April 1st of each year.

“As the health care industry evolves, physicians are not only joining large, multimillion dollar practices, they’re running these organizations. 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.”
-- Steven Ullmann, Director, Health Sector Management and Policy Programs, School of Business Administration
