Meet Our Students & Alumni
"While the coursework has been rigorous to prepare students for medical school, the support and guidance I’ve received from my peers and faculty has been the most invaluable to me in my personal and academic growth. In one year, I have become a better learner, gotten to know my advisors and professors on a level I did not have in my undergraduate years, and received advice unique to my own personal struggles that have helped me succeed in my coursework and exams."
"When I interviewed at Drexel, I was impressed with the caliber of the research combined with the welcoming attitude of the students and faculty and knew I could get the support and freedom to thrive."
"What is for sure is that if you're open to it, you will learn everything from the tangible skills, like the biochemical assays and the actual benchwork, to the intangible skills, like lab etiquette and how to present data to your team/boss. No matter where you go in science, these are the skills that are highly sought after."
