History, from the Drexel University College of Medicine Archives and Special Collections website:

In 1995 the medical schools of the Medical College of Pennsylvania and Hahnemann University were merged under a parent organization, the Allegheny Health, Education and Research Foundation, or AHERF. In 1996, the institutions were fully merged and united as Allegheny University of the Health Sciences (AUHS). 1998 saw the decline of AHERF, which resulted in a new name for the university: MCP Hahnemann University School of Medicine (MCPHU). Drexel University operated MCPHU until it became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Drexel on July 1, 2002, now known as Drexel University College of Medicine.
