“The MBA portion of the MD/MBA dual degree program has been a remarkable and intensive experience full of new opportunities and growth. Georgetown McDonough trains one to have an analytical and problem-solving mindset, which coupled with the leadership and teamwork training will be incredibly helpful in bringing solutions to the table in an ever changing healthcare industry. Additionally,the friendships formed have been as valuable as the knowledge learned. Working with world-renowned professors and having classmates from all over the world are two of the greatest strengths of the program. I am confident that much of what I have gained at the business school will aid me in my career as a physician and will enhance opportunities to improve the healthcare system as a physician-leader.”
