Clinical and Regional Campuses
At the time of admission to Temple University School of Medicine (TUSM), students are assigned to one of TUSM’s clinical or regional campuses for their third- and fourth-year clinical training. Applicants have the opportunity to rank their clinical and regional campus preferences on the supplemental application. TUSM makes every effort to honor ranked preferences.
All clinical training sites are in Pennsylvania and offer students the opportunity to see a wide range of medical disorders in people of varied social, economic and cultural backgrounds, and to learn the management of those disorders in diverse ambulatory and inpatient settings. Our clinical and regional campuses include:
