Our Team Approach Puts Your Education First and Foremost


We believe that you learn best by working closely with both patients and faculty. And we're the perfect size to practice what we preach and provide you with an education that will form the backbone of your professional career.


We're large enough to give you the widest possible range of educational experiences. Yet we're small enough to give you the personal supervision and guidance you need. Our growth as a health system expands your opportunity for learning by ensuring that you see a limitless variety of patients from various backgrounds.


We encourage this participation as part of our practice of open communication among faculty, staff physicians and residents...all of which adds immeasurably to your store of knowledge. From the day you join us, you will be an integral part of our team and function at a high level of professional competency.


“Temple’s urban setting, combined with its excellent professors and mentors, provided a unique blend of academic learning and intensive clinical experience.”
