   I highly recommend the Drexel Physician Refresher/Re-entry Program. It far exceeded my goals and expectations for remediating my medical knowledge deficits and for preparing me to return to practice after being away for 14 years. The program creates a safe, supportive and stimulating environment in which you have the time needed to evaluate your medical knowledge and clinical skills and update your deficiencies.
