  • 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.
