Affiliated Hospitals and Health Systems
Drexel University College of Medicine has academic affiliation agreements with a wide range of sites that provide high-quality clinical training for our students. The College of Medicine does not operate the hospitals and health systems that our students attend for clinical experience, but instead has longstanding affiliate partnerships that help guide students in working toward their future careers.
These 18 affiliate sites employ physicians and scientists with Drexel faculty appointments. Because these vital collaborators are located across Pennsylvania, New Jersey and California, our students are exposed to diverse patients and an array of health care issues.
Benefits for Students
The opportunity to experience multiple hospital cultures and to work with patients and professional staff in several settings:
- Enhances clinical education,
- Contributes to increased adaptability and flexibility,
- Can facilitate the shift to residency training and practice.
