Information for Prospective Students
Drexel's Physician Refresher/Re-entry program benefits several types of participants. Whether you're a physician returning to clinical practice or an international student hoping to learn more about the U.S. medical system, our courses are designed to make your transition as smooth as possible.
Here are the courses we recommend for our most common types of prospective participant:
Whether you explored a different career path, raised a family or simply retired, there are a number of reasons you may have stopped practicing medicine. But working with patients is a tough job to give up, leading many to seek relicensure and return to clinical practice. While returning after an extended period of time can be a daunting task, the Drexel Physician Refresher/Re-entry program makes the transition as smooth as possible.
International medical graduates face several challenges when looking for a U.S. graduate medical education training program. Fortunately, the Physician Refresher/Re-entry program offers preceptorship, observership and shadowing opportunities to help you become acculturated into the U.S. medical system, enabling you to better compete in graduate medical education programs.
Medical Graduates Seeking Residency
Many of our participants come seeking placement in a residency program. While participation in this program does not guarantee residency, we offer several observership, preceptorship and shadowing opportunities to prepare you for those programs and have been successful in helping many physicians obtain their goals. We strongly suggest that you talk with a residency director to see if this opportunity will improve your competitiveness.
Many of our participants have been referred to us by state medical boards, hospital credentialing groups, employers, health groups, university residency programs and attorneys. We work with you to assess, educate, or home in on a targeted clinical or communication skill for your physician(s).
