The Drexel University College of Medicine has named a suburban Philadelphia hospital as its sixth regional medical campus.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports up to two dozen students per medical class will complete their clinical rotations at Crozer-Chester Medical Center in Upland during their third year.
The change is expected to take effect in July 2017.
The hospital had been a clinical campus — a lesser designation — for Drexel's medical school for more than three decades prior to Monday's announcement.
