Among the joint degree programs out there, MD/MBA programs are especially compelling. Not only do you receive training as a doctor, you also learn the foundations of business while building a network of professionals who will go on to become leaders in their prospective organizations and entrepreneurs starting new ventures.

At Admit2Med we are in the best possible position to advise you about MD/MBA programs, as we can offer the perspective of an expert in MBA admissions. Yael Redelman-Sidi, the co-founder of Admit 2 Med, started her admissions career at NYU Stern School of Business. She will help you understand how the admissions committee evaluates your profile, including what they are looking for in your essays, recommendation letters and interviews.

Creating a Strong Application

Even if you have already started medical school, there are many things you can do to improve your chances of getting into your dream MD/MBA program. We will analyze your profile and together identify ideas on how to build an experience (and a resume) that will show the admissions committee you are the right candidate for such a selective program. For example, leadership positions in student clubs and internship opportunities will show MBA admissions committees that you are dedicated to a career in the intersection of medicine and business, and that your career goals and vision are based on hands-on, real-life experience.

Essays and Recommendation Letters

While you may have worked diligently on your AMCAS personal statement, MBA essays are quite different. Here, you are asked to talk about a leadership experience, team failure, going above and beyond, working in a global environment and more. If your experience is limited to volunteer work, shadowing or a summer internship, you will struggle to find enough substance to create strong and impressive stories. We can help you analyze your experience and identify the best aspects of each one and how to format them in a manner that will impress admissions committees.

Interview Preparation

You may already have interviewed for a few medical schools, but business school interviews are significantly different. While the agenda at medical school interviews is focused on “why you want to become a doctor,” the MBA interview strives to cover a lot of content: from your communication skills to your global exposure and leadership style. We will provide you with a comprehensive list of commonly asked questions, hold mock interviews by phone and video conference, and create custom questions based on your background and career goals. We will give you feedback on your body language and help you present yourself in the optimal way.

School Selection

If you are applying to MD/MBA joint programs, we will discuss the various programs available to you, as they all have different requirements and scheduling. For example, while some schools require you to take the GMAT or the GRE, other schools may be fine with just your MCAT scores and your current GPA.

As you consider your career goals and the various paths you see yourself taking, you should evaluate the various resources that will be available at each MD/MBA program. Some schools (such as UPenn and Harvard) will allow you to participate in the recruiting process for summer internships, while other schools (such as NYU) may not. There are many considerations that come into the picture, and we are here to help you find the best fit for your needs and preferences.
