Measured changes in the number and nature of the affiliations between management and medicine in the form of MD/MBA programs in the United States. Found that the number of MD/MBA programs grew from 6 to 33 between 1993 and 2001, and 17 more medical schools were considering establishing the joint-degree program. MD/MBA programs apparently attempt to complement medical education with management education rather than the converse. (EV)
