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.
