MBA Pathways

In order to play a meaningful role in shaping the future of health care, it is critical for radiologists to obtain the leadership and business skills necessary to stay at the forefront of the most important issues in health care. To assist in this effort, the RLI partners with some of the nation's leading business schools to provide pathways for RLI participants to earn a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA).
