Our students have the opportunity to explore their scientific and clinical interests throughout their four years. Our long-standing partnerships with several affiliate training sites expose students to diverse patient populations and a variety of health conditions.

Marc Andrew Hem Lee, Drexel MD Program Student

Marc Andrew Hem Lee

"I chose Drexel because I really felt at home here during my interview. My general sentiment for medical school entrance is to go where you believe you would feel most at home. As for students considering Drexel, it's important to know that what's special here is that we strive to be an integral part of the Greater Philadelphia community. That's something that is really impressed upon us from the first couple of months in the MD program. If you're interested in learning what it's like to build community as an advocate, as a necessary aggregate of an interprofessional team, then I would say come to Drexel."

Charmie Mehta, Class of 2022

"I really enjoy being here. The way our curriculum is arranged helps me to grasp concepts well. We learn a similar topic in microbiology, gross anatomy and biochemistry at the same time, which isn"t how all medical schools work. I think learning this way helps you to see the bigger picture and reinforces concepts."
