The Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) offers a dual-degree DO/MBA through Saint Joseph's University Erivan K. Haub School of Business.
PCOM's DO/MBA Degree Program, the osteopathic profession's first graduate program in business administration, increases your career options and practice management skills while you prepare to become a physician. Learn what they don't teach you in medical school. On the business side, medical students today sense a need for solid business sense to manage a practice successfully in an age of increasing competition and regulation.
* PCOM does an excellent job of training you as an osteopathic physician. A cooperative program with St. Joseph's University now makes possible an augmented degree track that can enhance your efficiency and skills as a clinician by equipping you for the business management side of medicine.
* The DO/MBA program provides the business know-how every physician needs. A solo practitioner learns to make business decisions about managing time, money, personnel and practice building. Those joining group practice enter a small business that markets medical services, subject to all the lore and pitfalls of the business world. And physicians serving administration positions in academic health care centers, major hospitals, clinical departments or public health delivery gain a credential for senior management positions.

Earn a dual degree and be ready for the business side of health care tomorrow.
