MD Program – The Drexel Difference Courage to Care

Personal well-being is just as important as professional development, and we challenge you to care for yourself as holistically as you would your patients. Our faculty are steadfast advocates and accessible collaborators, supporting you to thrive in both the classroom and beyond.

Drexel faculty are leaders in the field and mentors in the classroom. But most importantly, they are full-time teachers dedicated to your education.

Career advisors, counselors and financial planners are ready to guide you during school and after graduation.

And when you need to recharge from academics, our recreational facilities and mental-health counseling help strengthen your body and your mind.

Although medical school is challenging, Drexel will sustain you as a student so you can heal as a doctor.

Here to Help

Mentoring and Advising
Our network of support ranges from fellow students to faculty members, administrators and professional staff. Through advisors, tutors and peer mentors, Drexel provides varied academic support at all levels.
