I really enjoyed their interview process for their program. They made me feel very welcome and responded promptly to my inquiries.
It has been a blessing in disguise for me. I have learned a lot about my profession as well as ways to help others.
My experience was okay, I attended school during Covid, so that made it a little challenging. On the weekends when we had to come to campus, we had to take covid test for entry into the classroom. This was a very tedious task. I would like to see a change in how the teacher's lecture. Meaning not reading from a PowerPoint. Overall I really enjoyed the interaction between my cohort.
This was a small school which made it easy to become close with most students. I love how diverse it was which led to learning about other backgrounds.
I love receiving education from faculty members that are passionate about making a difference in low-income communities.
Charles Drew is a very good school for pre med students to gain knowledge in Medicine and science. Overall this school is great.
CDU has great and amazing instructors and academic support. It has small class sizes which enable students to get individualized attention. The downside is the extremely limited class schedules, making it difficult to work. There’s FWS if you qualify. Second downside is the financial aid and scholarships process. It’s antiquated and beyond frustrating. Finally, there’s no student housing.
Great school, Application process is really easy. The area is perfect for someone who want to help the underserved communities. Great hospital across the street. A lot of programs and Events.
Charles R. Drew University of Medicine & Science is an excellent Historically Black College/University (HBCU) that prepares scholars for a profession in the medical/healthcare workforce.
My overall experience at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine & Science is amazing, not only are they very supportive and helpful but actually create an environment for me where I can be excellent.
No sports, no dorms, no party scene but this is a Medical school so those things aren't a priority for their students. They are strong where it counts like in academics and diversity.
Online learning has been smooth and the professors have been patient and understanding as new programs/technology is introduced to help expand online classwork beyond zoom.
When I started attending this university I was only able to take classes online due to covid. Although I was nervous about doing online schooling, I was able to have a good first semester and had no problem learning the material that was being taught in my classes.
My advisor has taken time out of her busy schedule to meet with various people from our program to assuage their concerns regarding how things would proceed during the pandemic. she's been very knowledgeable and kind during these trying times.
Just starting here, but despite the pandemic-related concerns, Drew is doing a pretty good job of addressing everyone's needs and keeping everyone on track. Most of the faculty and staff are pretty nice too.
The professors here do not want there students to fail, and their doors are ways open literally for any and everything. The campus is extremely small, and it’s something that I enjoyed being here. The hospital, which is across the street is my place for food lol. There’s politics where ever you go, and instead of getting myself involved in drama, and things I had no control over I went to class, and then I dipped. Overall you’ll meet and make lasting friendships with some dope people.
I enjoyed my classmates, Ms. Kelly-Parker and the knowledge that I gain. Some that can only be gain at a school that is focused based on healthcare in low income and disparities in the community it serves.
