Hello all, More and more I am becoming interested in the entrepreneurial aspects of medicine and biotechnology. I worry, however, that if I do only the MD/PhD I will have the scientific and medical know-how to venture into industry, but will lack the understanding of business to be successful. I know that often, people team up with others who have expert knowledge in one field that the other lacks (e.g. an MD and an MBA). But, even so, is it not important for someone in medicine to have a fundamental understanding of business? So, my main question is, is it unheard of for one to pursue an MBA and an MD/PhD degree? And, if not, when would one do this? I thought of perhaps pursuing an MBA at night during the gap year or two I plan to take to do research before going to med school, but I have no clue whether this achievable or even wise. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
