The College of Medicine's MD program trains future physicians in the science and art of medicine. At Drexel, our medical students learn to combine cutting-edge technology with the highest level of compassion in the practice of medicine.
The MD program works closely with Drexel University's other colleges and schools as well as with the Philadelphia community. 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.
The program's innovative curriculum, experienced faculty and vibrant student life provide Drexel medical students with an outstanding educational experience.

Meet Our Students and Alumni
"The MD/MS program allowed me to expand my research experience while at the same time having the freedom to explore my desired areas of interest. Drexel particularly interested me since Philadelphia is such a medically relevant city. On top of that, the connections that Drexel provided gave me the opportunity to pursue any specialty or field of interest that I wanted." Read more.
"I chose the College of Medicine partially because I had great experiences with Drexel and its physicians during my MPH years and partially because of the collaborative environment I detected from the faculty and students during my interview. Instead of cut-throat competition, Drexel encourages teamwork and has a sense of family amongst its students. The faculty and administration listen to our concerns and make subsequent changes, which I feel is very important to ensure the best possible education and environment during these challenging years of training."

"Drexel was a great option for medical school for multiple reasons. I was ready to experience a new city with a diverse patient population. I would be able to rotate in different hospital and clinical settings to emphasize and strengthen my clinical experience. I also really appreciated Drexel’s emphasis on women in health care. Through Drexel, I was able to earn the title of Women’s Health Scholar, in which I learned about additional resources to support and advocate for my future patients." Read more.
