Drexel Medicine's Physician Refresher/Re-entry program offers a range of courses for physicians intending to gain relicensure and return to active clinical practice, wishing to enhance their focus or area of interest, or preparing for admission to U.S. graduate medical education training programs.
Our courses utilize the College's excellence in medical education and instructional technology resources. The courses include onsite and distance-learning modules, which may be taken in sequence or independently.
Which course is right for you?
This in-person course, offered in six-week blocks, is ideal for physicians who wish to gain relicensure before returning to clinical practice after an extended leave, and those wishing to enhance their focus or area of interest or enhance existing clinical skills. It is also geared toward international applicants to U.S. graduate medical education programs.
Online Clinical Skills
Physicians with similar goals (relicensure, return to active practice, enhancement of clinical skills or change in focus or area of interest, preparation for entrance to U.S. graduate medical education programs) can also benefit from the online clinical skills program, which utilizes experienced standardized patients to enhance the physician's history-taking and communication skills.
The medical update is a distance-learning didactic curriculum that provides up-to-date general medical information (including subspecialty) needed for clinical practice. It will benefit participants hoping to enhance their clinical skills as well as those considering changing specialties.
Targeted Remediation and Training
This module has onsite and online components, and enhances the participant's skills in a specific area, such as medical documentation or chronic disease management.
