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.
OUR MEDICAL STUDENTS
Our community of medical students is what sets Drexel apart from other schools. By meeting new challenges in an environment of collaborative learning and respect, our students discover a deep sense of purpose.
Our Experienced Faculty
Our experienced faculty members prepare Drexel medical students for their careers as future physicians. In addition to teaching, our faculty members also treat patients and conduct research, which enables them to be effective mentors in today's rapidly advancing medical environment.
Beginning in August 2017, Drexel will implement a new innovative MD curriculum called "Foundations and Frontiers." Foundations and Frontiers is designed to create physicians for the 21st century. The curriculum instills all of the enduring qualities essential to clinical excellence while also including essential emerging competencies such as an understanding of population health, health informatics, quality and patient safety, and health care systems and financing.
