Dual Degree - M.D./MBA (HOM)
The Health Organization Management (HOM) program is a joint-venture between the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center School of Medicine, School of Pharmacy and the Rawls College of Business. The healthcare system is changing rapidly, and more urgently needed than ever are physicians with an advanced knowledge of business. To address this need, the Rawls College of Business and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine have partnered to offer a dual degree program where students can earn both a Doctor of Medicine and Master of Business Administration (HOM) within the four years of medical school. The MD/MBA dual degree produces outstanding physicians with an insight into the intricacies of healthcare management systems, finance, economics and delivery. This educational background gives physicians an advanced business expertise to enable them to more effectively manage the business of healthcare as they develop their own practices.
