The practice of medicine is increasingly team-focused, making leadership, management and team skills vital to success in practice. Additionally, knowledge of effective business practices is essential for physicians to function effectively in a rapidly and continuously changing health care environment. To this effect the University of Nebraska at Omaha, College of Business Administration (UNO CBA) faculty have collaborated with faculty and students at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (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 further information regarding the MD/MBA program, please 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.
