Hello... I am planning on taking a year off between 4th year/graduating medical school and beginning residency. I'm thinking about getting an MBA during that year, and was wondering if anyone knew of any schools that would offer a one year program (esp for applicants with an md). Thanks!

Bad ones like Cornell, Columbia, Emory, and Northwestern (Kellogg).

Couple top tens, and all top 50s.
Thanks for the replies :)

Just curious... why are these schools considered "bad?"

Ok, hold up. Sometimes if you have graduate program, schools will use this towards your "elective requirements" which allows joint degree MD/MBA or ANYTHING/MBA graduate usually within 12-16 months.

I'd suggest to see if you school has any affiliations, if not maybe some schools in the area would be willing to work with you.
