The Drexel Pathway to Medical School program is an early assurance, one-year non-thesis master's degree program at Drexel University College of Medicine. Our program gives students who have completed traditional pre-medical coursework the opportunity to enhance their academic backgrounds and prepare themselves for the rigors of a medical school curriculum by taking graduate-level courses comparable in content and rigor to those in the medical school curriculum.
The early assurance is a conditional acceptance for matriculation into Drexel University College of Medicine following successful completion of the program with achievement of the academic and professional benchmarks outlined in the program policies.
The purpose of the Drexel Pathway to Medical School program is to promote diversity at Drexel University College of Medicine by providing opportunities to individuals who come from socially or economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
Is Drexel Pathway to Medical School for Me?
The Drexel Pathway to Medical School is designed for students who want to attend medical school and have taken traditional premed coursework (one year of biology, chemistry, organic chemistry and physics with a lab) and the MCAT before applying.
Applicants who are usually accepted into the program include:
- Students from socially or economically disadvantaged backgrounds
- Students who are underrepresented minorities in the health professions
