"The American multi-payer healthcare system that leaves 28 million uninsured fails to meet the needs of society but amounts to nearly one-fifth of national spending. An advocate for single-payer healthcare, I chose the MD-MBA joint degree for the industry knowledge and skillset needed to lead a health policy solution that balances cost, efficacy, and social good."

“The treatment of illness in the modern era is the result of complex interactions between a multitude of parties with varying accountabilities. I am pursuing my MD-MBA at Tuck in order to learn about those systems, understand the interactions between them, and discover how I can best facilitate the process of health care as a physician-leader.”

"Current drug and justice systems are not sustainable. I am pursuing an MD-MBA for the opportunity to transform how we think of and deliver medical care to those who use drugs. I want to fight for those struggling with drug addiction and develop solutions to over-incarceration and undertreatment. A Tuck MBA provides the innovation and leadership necessary to critically examine drug and justice systems and work toward a humane and financially sustainable solution.”

Chris Lites

Christopher Lites

“It is impossible to extricate medicine from business -- the two are not mutually exclusive.  The medical field is a business just as much as any other industry.  I hope to leverage the skills and network developed in an MBA program to inform my endeavors in medicine.  I believe that a dual degree will provide me the tools necessary to establish a substantive change in the broken system that is contemporary healthcare.”

~Christoper Lites MDMBA Candidate, Class of 2024
