In 2021, Drexel University and Tower Health will open an additional location for Drexel University College of Medicine in West Reading, Pa., less than a mile from Reading Hospital, a Magnet-recognized facility and Tower Health’s flagship hospital. Tower Health's mission and values align with Drexel University's to deliver the highest quality medical education and serve our community.
Once the campus is complete, Drexel University College of Medicine at Tower Health will begin educating first-year medical students, who will study at the largest hospital between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. This immersive learning experience includes the same outstanding curriculum as the Philadelphia campus, expert faculty, and opportunities for students to pursue their passions through exposure to a diverse and underserved community. The first years in the class of 2025 will accompany the 3rd and 4th year College of Medicine students undertaking their clinical rotations at Reading Hospital.
