MD/MBA Program

Students in the program complete a five-year combined curriculum leading to an MD from the UC Irvine School of Medicine and an MBA from the UC Irvine Paul Merage School of Business.  The total number of units required to graduate from each program separately are satisfied by completing the MD/MBA program. Students begin the MBA program in the fall of their fourth year.  The fourth and fifth years of the program are divided across both schools.
