Diversity, Equity & Inclusion For Students

Drexel medical students at the annual White Coat Ceremony.

Students who attend racially and ethnically diverse medical schools are better prepared to care for patients in a diverse society. With that in mind, our admissions office looks at more than test scores and GPAs. We use a holistic review process that looks at the whole person and what they'll add to the Drexel community and beyond. Our commitment to diversity has enabled us to create an academic environment that mirrors the world we live in.

With over 65 recognized student groups and a vast network of support programs and mentors, we encourage students to connect with those who share similar interests and backgrounds while embracing and learning from the differences of others. The College of Medicine provides an opportunity for all students to grow and learn from the differences found in each other, but more importantly, we provide a way to connect through our similarities and common interests.

The Office of Diversity in Medicine supports several student groups including:

  • Student National Medical Association
  • Latino Medical Student Association
  • Drexel Black Doctors Network
  • LGBT Medical Student Group
  • Drexel Mentoring and Pipeline Program (DMAPP)

The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Professional Studies provides additional support for its students through several Graduate School Resources.

All College of Medicine students can also take advantage of University-wide initiatives including:
