MD/MBA in Health Management

An Update for Applicants to the MD/MBA Program at TUSM - Heller School for Social Policy and Management

For a multitude of reasons, including the complexity of the new MD curriculum, the desire of MD/MBA students for new initiatives and programming, and the School of Medicine’s priorities related to our new strategic plan (e.g., implementation of additional coursework related to racism and health inequity), TUSM has decided to redesign the MD/MBA program. We will launch a planning process in the 21-22 academic year involving faculty, administrative leaders, current students, and alumni to provide recommendations for a new five-year MD/MBA program to replace the existing four-year curriculum.

The new MD/MBA model will be available to the M26 class, so you would apply to the MD program only for M26. There will be a second portal after your second year for admission to a redesigned MBA program between 3rd and 4th year.

TUSM and the Heller School are committed to providing our current MD/MBA students, including the incoming M25 class, with the full four-year curriculum experience as planned. We have been working in an excellent partnership with the Heller School at Brandeis for nearly 26 years and will work with them on the redesign project.
