Program Description

The joint MD/MBA degree program in Medicine and Management at Yale University develops physician managers capable of pursuing careers that balance clinical care with managing change in a tumultuous healthcare environment. The Yale School of Medicine brings its innovative curriculum, emphasizing individual responsibility in a team atmosphere; the Yale School of Management brings strengths in management across the private, public, and nonprofit sectors.

This joint degree combines the four-year Medical Doctor degree with the Master of Business Administration. The joint degree program requires five years of study, with the simultaneous award of the Doctor of Medicine and the Master of Business Administration at the conclusion of the five-year period. A joint degree student will pay tuition to the School of Medicine for three and one-half years and to the School of Management for one full academic year plus an additional semester. While enrolling in courses and paying tuition in one school in any given semester, students must provide the registrar of the other school with a photocopy of their course registration form and to advise both registrars of any course changes.

The Yale SOM mission to educate leaders for business and society is put into practice every day by our graduates, who embody our vision for them as inspiring, broadly engaged, values-based leaders who own and solve hard problems that matter. The Yale Management integrated curriculum is designed to foster and develop the distinctive qualities that have made Yale SOM graduates leaders in so many fields. Leading and Managing Boundaries. With foundations in the multisectoral heritage of the school, the concepts of broad engagement and broader perspective are now captured in the multidisciplinary delivery of our integrated curriculum, as well as in the path-breaking required international components of our MBA program. It is also embodied in the careers of many of our graduates, who are known for a high level of collaboration; and who work in, run, and create organizations that are responsive to the global organizational realities of the modern world. Transforming Positive Values into Personal, Professional, and Institutional Commitments. At SOM today, through our Leadership Development Program and other curricular and co-curricular activities, we encourage our students to think deeply about their personal values and what those values imply for their future personal and professional choices and actions. In addition, in our core curriculum, because courses are organized not around academic disciplines but around organizational constituencies, we are able to focus deliberation on ethical considerations in ways that a traditional MBA cannot. But this commitment to values is not a by-product of our new curriculum: it is a fundamental characteristic of the Yale School of Management since its founding. As a result, Yale SOM graduates are known for their integrity and their accountability, not only in their actions but also in the organizations they create, whose objectives are both to create value and to add value to society. Bringing Creativity and Discipline to Complex Management Problems. By de-emphasizing the rote application of frameworks and formulae that is inherent in a discipline-based curriculum, our integrated curriculum presents students with management problems that aren’t “prepackaged” for easy analysis, thus stimulating creativity in their approach to problem-solving. At the same time, by presenting critical management knowledge in organizational context, our students develop the disciplined habits of mind that allow them to maximize the effectiveness of their management decision-making. Similarly, Yale SOM graduates, especially those in entrepreneurial or cross-sectoral endeavors, have long been recognized for their unique combination of “soft” and “hard” skills – a combination that is more conducive to recognizing – and successfully acting on – opportunities as they present themselves.
