I hope to see some of you in Lubbock for the 9th Annual MD/MBA Conference. This year, I have the opportunity of speaking on Sunday morning about non-clinical career opportunities for physicians interested in business.
The Annual MD/MBA Conference will take place April 8-10, 2011 in Lubbock, TX. For more information and to register for the conference, click here.
Here's some history about the Association of MD/MBA Programs:
In 2003, MD/MBA program directors of the then thirty-three identified dual degree programs in the U.S. began meeting annually in order to build ties, share experiences hone the mission of the programs, and help new programs to prosper from lessons learned. The meetings were held at rotating universities to highlight their MD/MBA program. Program directors shared details of their programs and invited dual degree speakers to discuss their chosen career paths. MD/MBA students from the programs attended with their directors. Such enthusiasm was evident; naturally these annual meetings emerged into weekend long conferences with increasing attendance and have been supported by the hosting universities.
