  • College of Medicine MD Program

The College of Medicine's MD program trains future physicians in the science and art of medicine. At Drexel, our medical students learn to combine cutting-edge technology with the highest level of compassion in the practice of medicine.

The MD program works closely with Drexel University's other colleges and schools as well as with the Philadelphia community. Our students have the opportunity to explore their scientific and clinical interests throughout their four years. Our long-standing partnerships with several affiliate training sites expose students to diverse patient populations and a variety of health conditions.

The program's innovative curriculum, experienced faculty and vibrant student life provide Drexel medical students with an outstanding educational experience.

DeAnnah Dick, Drexel MD Program Student

DeAnnah Dick, 3rd Year Medical Student

"When I was deciding which medical school I was going to attend, one of the main reasons I chose Drexel was the diversity it offered. Drexel is known for having an extremely diverse class each year, and having grown up in a suburban mostly-white community, I thought this would be a great change. I also thought being in Philadelphia would expose me to all types of patient populations so I could get experience working with patients from every possible background. After two years here, I definitely think this has held true."
