Students interested in becoming leaders in health-care organizations such as physician practices, hospitals, or insurance and pharmaceutical companies may pursue a Full-Time MBA and MD degree. The joint-degree in medicine and business arms students with the necessary knowledge in economics, statistics, and the behavioral sciences to become leaders in their field.
To earn a dual MBA/MD degree, students complete 1400 units of Booth-only course credit (+LEAD) and required coursework at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine over a five-year period. Students complete their first two years of residency in the medical school. Students are encouraged to complete their first two years of medical school prior to applying.
During their third year at the medical school, they complete their clerkship/rotations during all four quarters. During their fourth year, students spend Summer Quarter at the medical school and Autumn, Winter, and Spring Quarters at Chicago Booth, where they typically complete 1200 units of course credit plus LEAD. Their final year consists of a business internship in the Summer Quarter followed by their remaining quarters spent in the medical school, where they incorporate their remaining 200 units of course credit at Chicago Booth to complete the joint-degree requirements.
