Temple University Hospital (TUH) is a 746-bed tertiary care facility on the Health Sciences Campus of Temple University in Philadelphia. It is the primary clinical teaching site for the Schools of Pharmacy and Medicine and is a short walk from both facilities. Notable services of the hospital include transplant services (including a very active lung transplant center); intensive care units in neurology, neurosurgery, trauma, surgery, respiratory, and burns; and active research programs in multiple areas. The Temple University Health System also contains physician practices, an ambulatory care center in northeastern Philadelphia, the TUH Episcopal campus, and Jeanes Hospital, a community medical center that contains the Temple University Bone Marrow Transplant Program and has several School of Pharmacy faculty.
Temple University School of Pharmacy (TUSP) is adjacent to TUH and offers a 4-year Doctor of Pharmacy degree and several graduate programs. The close relationship between TUSP and TUH allows residents to participate in numerous educational experiences and work with pharmacy students during their clinical experiences, didactic coursework, and small group classes. Faculty and administration at the School are available to mentor the resident about careers in academia if this is an area of interest.
