Student life at the College of Medicine extends well beyond the classroom. From student groups to social events, we encourage students to get involved, stay healthy and explore our great city of Philadelphia. These out-of-classroom activities help build a level of comradery that's unique to Drexel students and makes the College of Medicine such a special place to complete your medical or graduate education.
