UNC medical students have the opportunity to earn doctor of medicine and master’s of business administration degrees in five years.
Students must apply to and be accepted by both the M.D. program and the M.B.A. program. They may apply to the dual-degree program either concurrently with an application to the medical school or in their first or second year in medicine. Successful candidates will complete the first three years of the M.D. program and then spend their fourth year in the core and elective M.B.A. courses. In the fifth year, students will take electives in both the M.D. and M.B.A. programs.
The first cohort of M.D./M.B.A. students began classes in Fall 2012. For more information about the program, please contact Jeff Kennedy, Associate Director, Health Care Entrepreneurship. He can be reached at (919) 966-2467or firstname.lastname@example.org.
