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.
