Beginning in August 2017, Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia will feature a new curriculum aimed to train physicians for the 21st century. The new curriculum will feature fewer lectures and more learning outside the classroom through online and independent assignments.

During their first year, the number of courses medical students take will be reduced and instead they will take courses that integrate multiple disciplines. In class, students will work in teams to apply knowledge to clinical cases.

In their fourth year, students will be able to choose to focus on advanced studies in a focus area, such as patient safety, biotechnology, or health informatics; or conduct a scholarly project under the direction of a faculty member.
