A partnership with the University of Buffalo in New York and healthcare provider Kaleida has led to a sponsored MBA program for surgical residents and fellows at the university.
The university's Accelerated MBA for Residents and Fellows is designed for medical graduates doing their postgraduate training. The one-year program allows them to pursue an MBA healthcare management track, adding business acumen to their medical qualifications.
Kaleida provides the tuition, with students working as business consultants delivering benefits to the firm.
The program welcomed its inaugural student this fall. For more information, see the university website.
