    I noticed that there are some DO/MBA programs out there, does anyone know anything about these? I tried looking at the individual websites to no avail. Thanks.

    NYCOM has DO/MBA program as well.

    D.O./Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.)

    This augmented degree program enhances the graduate’s efficiency and skills as a clinician by
    equipping him/her for the business side of medicine. The student learns to effectively manage
    resources including time, money, equipment and personnel, and to be prepared to cope with practice management, HMO’s and the administration of academic health care centers, hospital and
    clinical departments.

    ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS
    Applicant must be a matriculated student at NYCOM and have NYCOM approval to apply for the program.
    MCAT scores are accepted in lieu of GMAT scores. Students who have not completed required
    undergraduate accounting, economics, and computer courses will be scheduled to complete them at the onset of this program.

    Hope this helps.

    Anyone know if it is unheard of/very difficult to try and pursue an MBA after graduating from med school?

    No, it wouldn't be a big deal. MBA schools almost basically require applicants to gain some work experience before really applying anyway. I think a practicing physician would be considered a good applicant, and a lot of people are able to take night classes and such to get an MBA. Doable.
