The graduate medical education (GME) programs of Drexel University College of Medicine and Hahnemann University Hospital (HUH) are truly cooperative arrangements, providing outstanding clinical training.
All house staff members (interns, residents and fellows) are employees of the hospital where the program resides. In turn, the hospital provides the College of Medicine the resources to oversee the educational components of graduate medical education. Our GME programs are thus a mutual effort to provide the highest quality education, service delivery, and academic and clinical environments possible. We train house staff to be excellent clinicians who are prepared to pass their boards and provide compassionate care to their patients.
Drexel University College of Medicine, among the largest private medical schools in the United States, offers residents and fellows a full range of training at primary and affiliated hospital sites located throughout the Greater Philadelphia region.
Our residency and fellowship programs provide an exceptionally well-rounded clinical experience, with opportunities in primary, secondary and tertiary care, and exposure to the most current research, technologies, treatments and resources.
GME is guided by the recognition that today's medical professionals, no matter what their specialty, must be able to understand their patients' illnesses and their role as practitioners within larger contexts.
Our training programs emphasize inclusive, collaborative approaches to patient care, appropriate for today's rapidly changing and increasingly interdisciplinary health care environment.
