"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."
