Anthony Khong - Master of Science in Interdepartmental Medical Science Program Alumnus

Anthony Khong

"I built some great relationships with the faculty here. Two people in particular, Dr. Blanche Young and Christy Oldham, were instrumental to my success. Whenever I had a question, they were there to help me out. They helped me think through problems and showed me different ways to study. My advisor, Dr. Olimpia Meucci, was also a great resource. She always reassured me that everything would be alright and presented me with every option for getting into medical school. That's what I really like about Drexel. They foster this mentorship and encourage a personal relationship with the advisors."

"Going through the [Interdepartmental Medical Science] program and getting above the threshold that they require for the guaranteed interview proved to myself and proved to other medical schools that I do have the academic strengths needed to be successful. Another nice thing about the program is getting to see what medical school is like before getting in. Drexel's master's program is different from other master's programs because here you are actually taking real medical school classes."
