Welcome!

Our country needs more highly educated and motivated physician-leaders to address challenges in a variety of settings, from developing public health policies and managing massive hospital networks, to addressing global health concerns and shaping academic medicine. Tomorrow's leaders are likely to need more than one advanced degree to make a major impact in such an environment. The Physician Leadership Development Program provides a dual-degree program for those students who want to become the leaders of tomorrow.

The Physician Leadership Development Program (PLDP) offers medical students an innovative program through which they can obtain a master’s degree (M.B.A. or M.P.H.) while pursuing their medical degree over five years. The PLDP program provides a unique opportunity to integrate medical and graduate studies through a longitudinal clinical experience that all students take during their graduate term. Additionally, PLDP students attend leadership-themed electives and special programs that build leadership skills and introduce them to experts in the field. All PLDP students participate in the PLDP Council.
