Actually, it is a good program. It takes a lot of work, and it is expensive. On the otherhand, starting with the graduating class of 2006, you will be in Kansas City for the whole third year, without the worry of matching. and you won't be a month behind. I'm in 2004 and we aren't a month behind either. I don't know where he got that info. We don't schedule our vacation it is given to us in either nov. or aug. of third year. You won't even have that restriction. Your rotations will be just like everyone else's. The best perk is that it is an MBA in Health Care. You do talk about other industries, but it always comes back to Health Care. Coding, billing, business plans, best practices, and marketing strategies are only a few of the things involved in the MBA, not to mention Managed care contract negotiations and Health care law.
It is not easy, but it will pay itself off. PD's that I have talked to said that getting a second degree during med school would be a certain plus in residency decisions (that was the main reason I did it.)
