Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

Drexels Community Health and Prevention program allows its students the opportunity to gain experience in research and provides a solid understanding of the fundamentals of public health by immersing students in the core disciplines of public health with an emphasis on practice, policy and community engagement. The school has deep relationships with both the City of Philadelphia Department of Public Health as well as The Regional CMS/SAMHSA offices that are based in Philly which students can apply to intern. The program goals of helping students learn through real life work experiences is invaluable. Drexels program has a commitment to producing public health experts equipped to take on the challenges specific to communities. On a systems level, Drexel is involved with hospital systems and lots of FQHCs and organizations such as Delaware Valley Community Health, YMCA, and Project HOME - all of which specifically focus on urban health issues. The Dean of the school has done some seminal research into the effects of place/environment on health. Drexel allows students to learn about health policy and build on their commitment to public health at a high level. The focus on social determinants of health and learning to create, implement, and evaluate interventions to target health disparities is a program that aims to improve the quality of life for its residents in the community. Drexels stands out to me as a school that speaks of the need to produce alumni that are well rounded and culturally competent.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program, ABA, is found to be an effective treatment for social behavior change. The types of interventions used show very consistent results. Con is that the time and cost for ABA can be prohibitive. About treatment are about 40hrs a week. Drexel provides quality education for ABA but tuition is expensive.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

Drexel has a very good MBA program, but it is difficult to schedule appointments with your academic advisor. Most professors are very clear and concise and previously taught at Penn, so you pretty much get a Wharton experience at a third of the cost.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

The DPT program at Drexel University is one of the best structured programs that I came across while I was applying last year. The courses are scheduled so that the information overlaps and builds upon itself between the classes in each quarter. For instance, during the first two quarters, anatomy, kinesiology, and PT exam and intervention all coordinate so that you learn the anatomy, how the anatomy affects movement, and how to test the muscles and joints simultaneously. This really helps with understanding the material. Additionally the clinicals are spaced out through the curriculum and and the time spent in the cadaver lab learning anatomy is 20 weeks, longer than most other programs. Overall, the program has great teachers who go above and beyond to help and be available for students. The curriculum is set up well and is high quality information. The teachers make sure to stay up to date with the most recent evidence and almost all of them still practice in the clinic. Overall I would recommend this program to anyone interest in attending a doctoral physical therapy program.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

I feel that the on-line education is very well organized. I have had several wonderful professors so far that have offer excellent learning opportunities. The only problem I have had so far was reaching out to someone at the University to answer questions relating to financial aid and receiving helpful answers to those questions. It is a very confusing process for a on-line student with little help.
