Temple University School of Medicine

dean's office

The Dean's Office of Temple University School of Medicine has the primary purpose of establishing the direction of the school by establishing priorities that support our three major interrelated missions:

  • To provide excellent student and resident centered education;
  • To engage in research that advances medical science and clinical care; and
  • To provide state-of-the-art health care.

The primary responsibilities of the Dean’s Office include setting policies and developing strategies to turn the school’s vision for the future into a reality.


Over the past several years, the School of Medicine has enhanced its educational programs to meet the contemporary needs of its graduating students, improved its national standing in extramural research and support and expanded its clinical programs.  In making these decisions, the leaders of the School of Medicine consult with our faculty, staff, postdoctoral scholars, students and the university administration.
