MD/Master of Business Administration (MBA)

The MD/Master of Business Administration (MD/MBA) program is designed for Perelman medical students interested in integrating the study of medicine with training in managerial, financial, and technical expertise in the health care field. The majority of students who matriculate in the MD/MBA program enroll in the Health Care Management major at Wharton, but other majors are also available. Matriculation into the MD/MBA program obligates the student to follow all regulations and policies of the Medical School and of the Wharton School.
