Learn alongside your peers.
You will complete the program in a small cohort of like-minded, experienced physicians who speak the same industry language and have similar goals about leading healthcare change. At the start of the program, you’ll be arranged into teams of five physicians, which rotate every six months so that you’re constantly learning alongside a variety of other physicians. Working together--online and in person--to solve a problem, your group of multi-specialty physicians from various backgrounds and practices will discover unique and innovative solutions while also learning countless lessons from one another. This experience will enrich your leadership, teamwork, and problem-solving capabilities while helping you acquire additional tools to strengthen the interpersonal skills essential to working with and influencing others.

I chose the Physician MBA Program because it focused specifically on physicians and healthcare. I wanted to be among like-minded physicians so we could really zero in on the business of medicine.
