Accelerated MBA for GME Residents/Fellows

Accelerated MBA for GME Residents / Fellows


As the business of medicine evolves with health care reform, physicians with an MBA will be ahead of the curve.

Learn the complex dynamics of the business of medicine and develop the toolkit necessary for eventual roles as physician executives or leaders. The School of Management and the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences offer an MBA collaborative program for residents and fellows who are in UB Graduate Medical Education-sponsored or affiliated programs. 

You can complete the program in approximately three semesters and receive an MBA degree during your residency/fellowship training. You will receive a reduction of 15 credits off the usual required 60 in recognition of working on the residency.  

Be Career Ready

  • Apply analytical skills to understand the delicate balance between patient outcomes and efficiency
  • Develop effective leadership, teamwork, critical thinking and communication skills
  • Develop practical financial management skills
  • Understand the inter-related role of health care policy development, facility management and strategic planning
  • Immerse yourself in the diverse community of full-time MBAs
  • Network with alumni and leaders from the top health care organizations around the country through the school’s active Health Care Advisory Panel

Timeline

To participate in the Resident/MBA program, you need to have completed your first year of residency, and must be able to complete the MBA coursework before completion of your last year of residency.

  • In a three-year resident program, enter the MBA program in fall of the second year of residency, and complete the MBA coursework by the end of year three
  • In a four-year resident program, enter the MBA program in fall of the second or third year of residency, and complete the MBA coursework by the end of year four
  • In a five-year resident program, enter the MBA program in fall of the second, third or fourth year of residency, and complete the MBA coursework by year five

Admissions

You must currently be in a residency or fellowship program in the UB Office of Graduate Medical Education AND separately apply to the School of Management. As a Resident/MBA, you are not required to take the GMAT or the GRE.
