M.D./M.B.A. Program Admission Requirements and Application Procedures

About the M.D./M.B.A. Program

The M.D./M.B.A. program recognizes that there is an increasing demand in the health care sector for physicians with management skills and expertise. This is a five-year program in which the first year is spent in the Desautels Faculty of Management completing the M.B.A. core as well as building a solid background in health care management. Then, students will begin their medical studies, which will be integrated with additional elective courses in management. This will provide the opportunity to train well-rounded physician-managers who can eventually pursue interesting careers in a wide range of health care facilities, from the smallest clinic to the largest tertiary health care facility, from research laboratories to university or hospital medical departments. Our graduates will also have career opportunities in the health insurance sector, which is a significant layer of the health care system in a number of countries, including the United States.

Upon graduation, students receive an M.B.A. from the Desautels Faculty of Management and an M.D.,C.M. degree from the Faculty of Medicine.

Note: Students will have to follow the M.B.A. Base Camp (Statistics, Math for Finance, Financial Accounting) prior to commencement of the M.B.A.
M.D./M.B.A.; Management (Non-Thesis) (51 credits)
Offered in cooperation with the Faculty of Medicine.
