We specialize in healthcare education beyond the books. 

What makes Drexel so different from many other parts of the university is our recognition that while class work is indispensible to a professional education, no amount of study can substitute for hands-on learning. 

You will see evidence of this commitment throughout this website, in descriptions  of our undergraduate Co-op programs, in presentations of our clinical practica and in our emphasis on the use of simulation and technology.
