Drexel University College of Medicine, a new name just a few years ago, is the consolidation of two venerable medical schools with rich and intertwined histories: Hahnemann Medical College and Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania.
Established in 1848 and 1850, respectively, they were two of the earliest medical colleges in the United States, and Woman's was the very first medical school for women in the nation.
The College of Medicine's main campus, Queen Lane, is in a suburban-like setting in the East Falls section of Philadelphia. Additional facilities are located at the Center City campus, which includes Hahnemann University Hospital.
The Pediatrics Department is at St. ChristopherÃ¢â¬â¢s Hospital for Children, and Psychiatry is based at Friends Hospital. Students can receive clinical education at 25 affiliated hospitals and ambulatory sites chosen for commitment to teaching as well as medical excellence.
The Drexel University College of Medicine offers courses in AIDS, drug/alcohol abuse, family medicine, geriatrics, internal medicine, pediatrics and women's health.
The most popular residency and specialty programs include: anesthesiology, emergency medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, orthopaedic surgery, pathology - anatomic and clinical, pediatrics, pediatrics - pediatric gastroenterology, radiology - diagnostic, and surgery - general.
Today, with over 1,0025 medical students, Drexel University College of Medicine (DUCOM) is the largest private medical school in the country. Biomedical graduate students number more than 500.
There are some 538 full-time and 59 part-time faculty.
The student to faculty ratio is 2:1
