Leadership is central to the work of a physician, and it is also fundamental to coursework in the Physician MBA Program. As the only top-ranked business school offering a rigorous MBA exclusively for physicians, the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University is committed to training physicians in the business of medicine. Through our partnership with the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL), physicians have access to graduate management education and support in their journeys to drive effective change in healthcare.
