Medical students in classroom The White Coat Ceremony Dr. Carson Schneck with Anatomy students


Temple University School of Medicine has three major missions:

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

Education is paramount.  The School teaches approximately 720 medical students, 140 graduate students and 500 residents.  It sponsors programs leading to the MD and PhD degrees and dual degrees leading to MD/PhD and MD/MPH degrees, in addition to a Post Baccalaureate Premedical program.  Basic science, clinical science and the interrelationship between the two are emphasized throughout.  Faculty are equally committed to teaching students in all programs.  Upon completion of their degrees, medical students are well prepared to enter graduate medical education (residency training) programs and graduate students are well prepared to enter postdoctoral fellowships or careers in academia, industry or government.  Details of the education programs may be found by selecting the appropriate links.


Temple University School of Medicine is part of Temple Health.
