For over 100 years, Temple University Hospital has been a major teaching center for Temple University School of Medicine. A totally modern facility, Temple employs the latest technological and medical advancements on its attractive 26-acre Health Sciences campus. Today, it serves as both a tertiary referral center and a primary health provider, treating more than 250,000 outpatients and admitting over 20,000 patients each year.


Temple University Hospital is part of the Temple University Health System - a growing major network of doctors, hospitals, nursing homes, and other health care providers. Our future is more promising than ever as we continue to expand our system into new communities.


System member hospitals are located in diverse communities throughout Philadelphia, treat a wide variety of patients, and continually refer patients to Temple University Hospital. Exposure to this diverse pool of patients enhances your knowledge and experience as well as your personal and professional development.


Your Temple training can also be advanced at our other sites, depending upon your program and its specific requirements. Over and over, our house officers tell us that the more they learn about Temple's programs, the more attractive a Temple education becomes.


“The teaching is very clinical and hands-on. You learn by seeing and doing and in that respect no one can hold a candle to Temple.”
Paul Newman, MD, General and Trauma Surgery
