Looking forward...the leadership of both the Lewis Katz School of Medicine (LKSOM) at Temple University and St. Luke's University Health Network have looked to the future to address a looming physician shortage – a problem that is impacting all of us, both locally and nationally. LKSOM and St. Luke's have embarked on this crucial endeavor to secure the future health and well-being of our community. The Temple/St. Luke’s School of Medicine hopes to add 150 or more qualified, well-trained practicing physicians to our community in 10 years.
