Hello everyone..i have read through a lot of the threads posted and it seem like you all have a lot of good advise to offer....So can you offer me some advice on this? Im starting my orthopedic residency in July and may have the oppertunity to complete an evening MBA in a period of 3-4 [email protected] a top 5 Bussiness school.. I love Ortho and plan to practice orthopedic surgery. I dont want to work for any health care company as a consultant or anything of tht nature I want to operate on peoples bones!!!!! However I am very bussiness minded and there are a lot of different " bussiness projects " tht i would like to pursue after residency and fellowship..one of which is building and directing the operation of a hospital in another country... Is an MBA necessary for my future endevors? If so do i need to go to a good school or is it all the same @ every business school? Is this even realistic as a ortho resident? Sould I wait untill i finish residency then do an MBA then fellowship?? Is there somewhere i can learn how to do such things without actually getting a MBA? Thanks for all your help please forgive my ignorance..
