Hi, I’m a MS1 at a t15/10 school who is very interested in pursuing a competitive surgical residency. My school offers a 5year MD/ MS in Clinical Research but I am wondering whether a MS or an MBA from Kellogg (Northwestern) would be more beneficial for me in obtaining a competitive surgery residency. While cost is obviously important, if an MBA will be useful and give me a bigger edge, I’m willing to add on to the loans. Also, is a dual degree going to be needed to obtain a competitive residency especially since AOA is gone & STEP1 is P/F? Thank you for your time!
