The Lewis Katz School of Medicine (LKSOM) is dedicated to educating and training students who will provide outstanding medical care to a culturally diverse population and who will be exceptionally well-prepared for further training and life-long career development.

The evidence-based curriculum provides a solid foundation in the basic sciences and extensive hands-on clinical training. Basic science and clinical medicine are integrated throughout the four years. More about the curriculum.

Students at both the North Broad Street campus in Philadelphia and the Temple/St. Luke's campus in Bethlehem take advantage of the many opportunities to go beyond the regular curriculum. Elective courses, research opportunities and community service experiences all enable students to personalize and enrich their education.

Student learning is superbly supported by the academic resources available at both campuses. These include libraries, clinical simulation centers, and technology support.

Students who choose the distinctive St. Luke's regional campus program experience the same outstanding educational opportunities and curriculum as students who spend all four years at the North Broad Street campus. However, with only 30 students in each class, Temple/St. Luke’s is distinguished by the intimacy of the learning environment and a highly personalized experience.


According to Tamara
Jette, "I'm so glad I
chose to go to a
school that has the
block system in which
you are focusing on
a single organ system
at a time."
