News & Announcements

Drexel University College of Medicine's Institute for Women's Health and Leadership is pleased to announce that its 2014 Woman One honoree is Laurada Byers, founder of the Russell Byers Charter School.


The ABIM Foundation announces new education modules, developed by Drexel University College of Medicine and nine medical specialty societies, to help physicians engage their patients in conversations about tests and procedures to question. Research has found that patient-doctor communication is perhaps the most significant component of a patient's visit; yet many physicians receive limited training to develop these critical communication skills. To help address this gap, the ABIM Foundation funded Drexel to create a series of interactive instructional modules based on specialty society recommendations from the Choosing Wisely campaign.


The International Society for NeuroVirology (ISNV) has selected Brian Wigdahl, PhD, as the 2013 Pioneer in NeuroVirology for his numerous research, education, and service achievements in the field over the past 35 years. Wigdahl is professor and chair of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, director of the Institute for Molecular Medicine and Infectious Disease, and director of the Institute's Center for Molecular Virology and Translational Neuroscience. He is the 11th recipient of this award and only the second not trained as a clinician. Wigdahl also served two terms as the founding president of ISNV and now serves as its second treasurer and is a member of the board of directors.


The National Center For School Crisis and Bereavement (The Center), located at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children and the Drexel University College of Medicine, announced today a four year, $1,400,000 grant from the New York Life Foundation to provide capacity building and general operating support for The Center and its key role in the Coalition to Support Grieving Students initiative. The Coalition is a group of representatives from the major national education associations in the country, whose sole goal is to provide bereavement resources at all touch points for children in the school system.


The Partnership Comprehensive Care Practice (the Partnership) of Drexel Medicine is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Over the span of two decades, the Partnership has not only grown in size, but also in reach. It started humbly in 1993 as one of the first clinics to treat a segment of the population that had been marginalized at the time due to the stigma that comes with an HIV positive diagnosis. Through the years, the Partnership has served thousands of patients and families in Philadelphia coping with HIV/AIDS. It is a comprehensive primary and specialty medical care practice that offers treatment and prevention services to about 1,900 people a year – regardless of their ability to pay.
