DrExcel Health Projects

Drexel engineering students at the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems found that they could not form an accurate picture of the needs that exist in clinical practice because they had limited familiarity with the clinical patient environment. DrExcel Health provides an opportunity for engineering students to identify projects that would benefit from collaboration between clinical faculty, College of Medicine alumni and senior medical students.

DrExcel Health project labs establish connections throughout the University that bring together students and faculty from multiple disciplines in an independent, extracurricular manner that encourages long-term efforts and commitment to original projects.

DrExcel Health provides a model for encouraging students to pursue their interests and thrive under a supportive environment so that they have the potential to take their projects from conception to startups, venture funding, or late-stage prototyping and beyond.
