The School and its Heritage

Our Reputation

From such modest beginnings, Temple University School of Medicine has emerged as a school of national reputation. One in every five people who applies to medical school in the United States applies to Temple. Some 708 graduates are on faculty at medical schools across the nation, 31 are department chairs, 2 are deans. Temple grads don’t stray far from their alma mater – many physicians in the Philadelphia region graduated from Temple – but others head biotechnology firms across the land, and others serve as doctors in countries as far away as Hong Kong, Isreal, and the Ivory Coast.
