About the MD Program
Drexel University College of Medicine has long been an innovator in medical education. Our supportive educational environment emphasizes collaboration and gives students a comfort level that lets them learn and thrive. Faculty members are concerned first and foremost with teaching and helping students.
MD Program Years One and Two
Recognizing that students have different learning styles, we offer two distinct tracks during the first two years of study — the Interdisciplinary Foundations of Medicine (IFM) and the Program for Integrated Learning (PIL). Both options focus on professional medical education, preparing students to pursue careers as either generalists or specialists. Both stress problem solving, lifelong learning skills, and the coordinated teaching of basic science with clinical medicine.
MD Program Year Three: Clerkship
In the third year, students take required clinical clerkship rotations in medicine, surgery, pediatrics, family medicine, psychiatry, and obstetrics and gynecology.
MD Program Year Four: Pathway
In the fourth year, the Pathway program lets students gain career experience in a general professional or a discipline-specific Pathway of their choice.
