The Medical Management Leadership Track provides unique educational experiences at the postgraduate level for physicians with management and/or business interests, including (but not limited to) the increasing number of physicians entering residency with dual M.D. and M.B.A. degrees. The goal of the track is to:
Train skilled clinicians who practice medicine (cornerstone of residency program);
Create innovative managers within healthcare systems (scientific framework);
Promote clinician-manager leadership career paths (elevate healthcare management science).
The program offers a concentrated experience over three years of internal medicine training that includes:
Longitudinal didactics focusing on meeting heath systems managers and learning core concepts of hospital management.
Block rotations during junior and senior year in health insurance, health policy, quality improvement, leadership, and drug development and delivery.
Clinical and administrative mentors representing faculty expertise in hospital administration/delivery, quality improvement, entrepreneurship, technology development, information technology, innovation, biotechnology.
Participants take on a mentored, longitudinal project focused on solving a specific healthcare delivery problem, especially projects affecting patient care relevant to physicians-in-training.
A fourth-year advanced management fellowship is available to selected trainees who demonstrate a high level of commitment, aptitude and excellence.
