Drexel University College of Medicine

As with most places in Philadelphia, Drexel University College of Medicine is steeped in history. It traces its roots to 1848, with the founding of the Homeopathic Medical College of Pennsylvania and the Female Medical College of Pennsylvania, which was founded two years later as the nation’s first medical school for women. Over the years, both schools grew and changed and eventually merged under the Drexel umbrella. Both boast well-known graduates, including the first Native American female physician and NASA astronaut Patricia Robertson.

While it has a rich history, Drexel University College of Medicine is a forward-thinking educational facility that is preparing the next generation of doctors and researchers from around the world. It is the second-most sought-after medical school in the nation and is home to more than 2,000 students, including about one-half of whom are medical students. Students complete their first two years of education on campus, which features state-of-the-art facilities, including lecture halls, outpatient clinics and tech-enabled, hands-on educational venues, which are connected to Hahnemann University Hospital.
