4 year DIY MBA-MD?

I really want to get my MD-MBA, but don't want to do it in 5 years. Would it be feasible to do (similar to a DIY-postbacc) the following:

start an entirely Online MBA January 2021

start medical school August 2021 (pending I get in)

finish Online MBA by December 2021

Basically, have my first semester of med school overlap with my second semester of Online MBA. I know the transition to med school is tough and the first year is extremely difficult, but I really want to get my MBA-MD in four years and this would achieve that.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

No, many medical school will require you to either complete or withdraw from any other educational pursuits. Instead of worry about the time factor, should be concerned in simply getting in to medical school, where 60% of applicants get rejected, and then graduating. On the latter, only a little over 80% graduate in 4 years from medical school
