Goals & Mission

Heath care is one of the most crucial issues facing our nation today. There is a pressing need for leaders who have an in-depth understanding of the complexity of both medical and management issues.

Innovative solutions will come from those professionals with interdisciplinary expertise of a high order - leaders trained in medicine and equipped with the skills of management. As healthcare evolves, there is a growing need for individuals with backgrounds both in medicine and management. The MD/MBA program at Dartmouth promotes clinical credibility while promoting managerial and administrative excellence.
