One of our historical strengths has been our commitment to excellence in teaching and research. Temple University School of Medicine (TUSM) faculty members are committed to ensuring that by the time students graduate, they not only have a quality education but have been inspired and enlightened by their experiences in the classroom.   In addition, TUSM investigators participate in collaborative research within interdisciplinary research centers, all of which have a focus related to translational medicine.


TUSM actively recruits top-notch faculty members to enrich its outstanding cadre of teaching professionals. Faculty members who have joined TUSM over the past few months are:
