The practice of medicine is increasingly team-focused, making leadership, management and team skills vital to success in practice. The University of Nebraska at Omaha, College of Business Administration (UNO CBA) faculty have collaborated with faculty and students at UNMC to create a structure that will allow medical students to obtain both an MD degree and an MBA degree as efficiently as possible. For more information about this dual-degree option see the program brochure, page 7, or contact: Chandrakanth Are, MD, MBA, FRCS, FACS
The MD/MPH dual degree is a five-year program designed for those students who envision becoming leaders in both medicine and public health. The additional knowledge and skills obtained with the MPH degree will enhance clinical skills for individual patient care in addition to providing a broader community or population perspective to health care.
The MD/PhD Scholars Program is designed to prepare a select group of outstanding students for careers in academic medicine and research. Applicants admitted to this highly competitive program pursue original research and participate in the medical school curriculum.
