Another family medicine residency that combines an MBA

Here's another family medicine residency that combines an MBA:

The UMKC School of Medicine Community and Family Medicine Residency offers a unique program that combines a community hospital setting with the opportunity to gain additional experience at an urban hospital. The three-year program provides residents with the knowledge and skills necessary to be a successful family medicine physician in a variety of practice environments. There are currently 36 residents in the program. The program is nationally recognized as a program of excellence, particularly in the area of obstetrics education.

Beginning in 2004, residents can also choose to complete an MBA as part of their residency. The MBA in Health Care Leadership for Physicians is the first combined residency/MBA in physician healthcare leadership in the country. Designed to fit the schedule of family medicine residents, classes are held at nearby Rockhurst University. The program helps provide future physicians with the skills in business management and leadership necessary in today’s healthcare environment.
