Inside Look Into MBA/MD

Program Features

The Business of Breakthrough Medicine.

True to the mission of Johns Hopkins, the MBA/MD program leverages the multi-disciplinary knowledge, research, and values that are signatures of both the internationally respected School of Medicine and the convention-shattering learning approach of the Carey Business School.

The Johns Hopkins MBA/MD program not only redefines how society cares for its people—it offers a crucial new perspective on business’s role in making that mission a reality. Students in this dual-degree program are among the best and most ambitious in the country, as is the faculty—researchers, influencers, entrepreneurs, business experts, and medical luminaries who instill in students the confidence, the courage, and the knowledge to make an impact in patients’ lives.

Sample Curriculum

The curriculum of the MBA/MD program reflects the requirements and content of two degree programs: the Medical School Genes to Society curriculum and the Carey Business School MBA curriculum. Both are innovative new approaches to education in their respective fields.


In the dual-degree program, you’ll complete the first two semesters of the MBA program at the Carey Business School before starting medical school. In the summer semester, you will complete the second phase of the Discovery to Market project and will take two MBA electives. In academic years 2 and 3 of the 5-year program, you’ll complete years 1 and 2 of medical school. The summer between the first and second years of medical school (AY2 and AY3) and after the second year (AY3) will be devoted to medical school related classes or activities. During academic years 4 and 5, you’ll complete the academic requirements of the MD program and take MBA elective courses required to complete the MBA degree at Carey.

The typical MBA/MD candidate will follow the sample schedule, outlined below.
