Join us for a unique, interactive medical adventure as we morph through time to experience medical education from admission to graduation. Learn from students the challenges they face as applicants to medical school. Hear about their curriculum choices, and experience the PIL and IFM programs first-hand. Third year students share clinical year technical changes such as logging their patient and procedure experiences into a PDA or web-enabled cell phone. Visit our new Simulation Center with a fourth year student as case scenarios are programmed on our animatronic manikins. Graduates of this extraordinary program will receive their Drexel University College of Medicine Commemorative Diploma at the Dean's Award Luncheon.
