"What stood out to me was Drexel's inclusion of critical topics at the forefront of medical education in the curriculum. During my interview, students shared with me their experiences learning about topics like social determinants of health, harm reduction and implicit bias. This, combined with seeing the dedication of the student body to serving the underserved in the local community, made Drexel University College of Medicine stand out above the rest."

"We have a lot of non-traditional students, people who worked before coming to medical school. When you're talking about a case, you have so many perspectives and opinions in the room, and people actually listen, respect and want to hear those opinions."

"I also liked how Drexel values early clinical exposure. I just finished my first year, and I already got to see patients a couple of times. I volunteered a lot at the student health clinics. That was a good way to practice what we learned in the classroom and apply it to real-life situations."

"Every faculty member that I have worked with has been awesome and willing to go above and beyond. Dr. Nandi hosted a Crohn's disease event at Orangetheory fitness which I participated in and he helped connect me with a student in the year above me who gave me advice on future planning."

DeAnnah Dick, 3rd Year Medical Student

"When I was deciding which medical school I was going to attend, one of the main reasons I chose Drexel was the diversity it offered. Drexel is known for having an extremely diverse class each year, and having grown up in a suburban mostly-white community, I thought this would be a great change. I also thought being in Philadelphia would expose me to all types of patient populations so I could get experience working with patients from every possible background. After two years here, I definitely think this has held true."

"When I arrived on campus and met the staff, students and my potential future classmates, I felt at ease, like I was at home. Everyone was welcoming, and I remember leaving my interview day with a goofy smile on my face. Diversity was also very important to me, and I feel that Drexel not only supports that, but also celebrates it on their campus and within the Philadelphia community."

Colleen Franconi, 3rd Year Medical Student

"Every doctor I knew that graduated from Drexel University College of Medicine (DUCOM) had such good things to say about the school. Overall, they all thought they received a great medical education and training. I was eager to receive the same training. Drexel teaches its students the importance of empathy and compassion in medicine which to me is crucial in becoming the physician I want to be."

Amanda Reich, MD Program Student and Women's Health Education Program Scholar

"I knew I wanted to be in pediatrics from the start, and I feel very lucky that I had a great advisor in Dr. Levine, who was the Pediatric Clerkship Director and Pathway Director. We have a strong relationship that developed over my time here, and he really supported me throughout all four years of medical school. Additionally, the faculty specializing in Women's Health, specifically Dr. Wolf, was always available to help me and helped me to tailor my interests and passions into a project that suited me."
