MBAMBA/Master of Science in Medical Physiology

Strengthen your influence in the healthcare sector by earning dual Master of Business Administration and Master of Science in Medical Physiology degrees at Case Western Reserve, one of the top universities in Ohio. 

While a hospital is a place that administers care, at its core, it is a company. Whether you decide to follow a clinical or administrative route, Weatherhead School of Management and CWRU School of Medicine's degrees will teach you to speak management's language and communicate with clinical (and non-clinical) colleagues.

Why Pair Your Medical Physiology Degree with an MBA?

By understanding the business and healthcare provider sides of hospitals, you'll stand apart from your peers as a practitioner able to better adapt to the ever-changing healthcare environment while contributing to positive, sustainable change in your organization.

And our two-year degree program will unlock more professional options, allowing you to apply for positions in diverse career settings such as hospital administration and operations, healthcare consultation and pharmaceutical project management. Or, if you intend to advance your education in medical, osteopathic, or dental school, this dual degree will improve your chance of admission.
