Candidate:

Mr. MD/MBA

About Me:

I’m someone who’s passionate about healthcare, music, and cars/motorcycles. I value mentorship highly and enjoy helping others reach their goals. I’m interested in health economics and the US healthcare industry. Medicine is only 1/2 of healthcare in the US, and I want to prepare myself to help lead in our future healthcare system.

Big Life Wins:

1. Being accepted into a top medical program with a scholarship was a big win for me, especially coming from a low-income background. 2. I worked with administration (both at my high school and undergrad institution) to increase the representation of low-income or minority students. Both experiences were fulfilling and reasonably successful.

Post MBA Goal:

My goal in pursuing an MBA is to round myself out as a change-agent and put myself in a position to impact communities that are currently disadvantaged in our healthcare system. I want to work as an MD/MBA in some clinical capacities and at the systems level through administration, healthcare delivery/operations, or innovation.

    What I really like about your profile is how clear and focused you are–at such a young age–about what you want to do with your life. Your direction, your aim is really admirable and impressive. And coming from a low-income background, I salute you for all the hard work you’ve had to do to get to a top medical school.

    Story makes no sense. MD/MBA is a thing, but not with your story. You have no WE and your GMAT is prohibitively low. An MBA isn't the right next step for you.
