Program Details

You’ll complete the first three years of the Medical School curriculum, then spend your fourth year fully integrated at Questrom within the Health Sector MBA program. During this fourth year, you’ll take 39 credit hours of courses, focusing on core management classes. Multiple aspects of the sector will be addressed, including health care delivery, the life sciences industry, and health information technology.

In your fifth year, you’ll complete their remaining medical courses and seven management course credits at Questrom. The Health Sector MBA is awarded by Questrom and the MD degree is awarded by Boston University School of Medicine.

A key aspect of the Health Sector MBA+ MD joint degree program is the internship requirement. All students who wish to complete this joint degree are required to do a 400-hour field placement in a health sector organization. Typically this is achieved during free blocks in the student’s final year at the School of Medicine. The summer internship helps you develop connections and expertise that are crucial for your career search.
