Virginia Tech’s Pamplin College of Business to Launch an MD/MBA Program

New dual-degree program offered in partnership with the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine

Virginia Tech’s Pamplin College of Business has partnered with the Carilion School of Medicine to launch a joint MD/MBA program.

The new program will allow students pursuing a doctorate in medicine to earn an MBA at the same time.

Initially, the program will target future and current MD students at the Carilion School of Medicine. For future cohorts, students at other medical students will be targeted.

“Students who take advantage of the program will be uniquely qualified as physician thought leaders, as they’ll have a set of skills that will allow them to navigate many challenges in healthcare management,” says Cynda Johnson, dean of the Carilion School of Medicine.

The announcement comes just days after a business school in Texas, the University of Houston-Clear Lake, announced plans to launch a similar MD/MBA program.

Virginia Tech plans to enroll its first MD/MBA students in the fall of 2016.
