Founded in 1884 by Russell Conwell as an informal adult-education outgrowth of his Grace Baptist Church ministry, Temple College was chartered in 1888, and incorporated as Temple University in 1907. Since 1965, Temple has been one of three state-related research universities in Pennsylvania; the other two are the University of Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania State University. Four of Temple's seven Pennsylvania locations are in Philadelphia. In addition to the 115-acre Main Campus and 17-acre Health Sciences Campus, Temple has two locations in Center City Philadelphia: the School of Podiatric Medicine and Temple University Center City, which offers credit and noncredit education and is located across from City Hall. In Philadelphia's northern suburbs, there is the 186-acre campus in Ambler and a location in Fort Washington offering graduate and noncredit courses. A seventh location is in the state's capital, Harrisburg, where Temple offers graduate degree and certificate programs.   The University has several long-established locations abroad. Temple University Japan (TUJ), Temple's pioneering campus in Tokyo, celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2007. TUJ was the first foreign University recognized by Japan's Ministry of Education. Temple University Rome, located in Rome's Villa Caproni, was established in 1966. Temple also operates study abroad programs in Brazil, China, Costa Rica, France, Germany, Ghana, India, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, Senegal, Spain, the United Kingdom and other locations worldwide.   Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM) www.temple.edu/medicine   Founded in 1901 as Pennsylvania’s first co-educational medical school, the Lewis Katz School of Medicine has attained a national reputation for training humanistic clinicians and biomedical scientists. The school attracts students and faculty committed to making a difference in patient care, research, education and public service — at home and across the globe. The School of Medicine and Temple University Hospital (TUH), its chief clinical training site, provide care for patients from throughout the region seeking advanced tertiary- and quaternary-level care. In addition, TUH serves one of the most vulnerable populations in the nation, providing more free and under-reimbursed care than any other hospital in Pennsylvania. With clinical training sites that include other member hospitals and specialty centers of the Temple University Health System and educational affiliates of the School of Medicine, medical students gain experience in a variety of urban, suburban, and rural in- and out-patient settings. They learn to provide culturally competent, interprofessional care to a diverse population of patients with simple conditions as well as highly complex ones.    The Lewis Katz School of Medicine is a school that prizes not just technical excellence but diversity, equality and inclusion. It teaches the true art and science of “doctoring.“ Moreover, its educational strategic plan, “Improving Health Through Innovation in Medical Education,” keeps pace with new medical knowledge and with emerging trends in care delivery.   The school’s home base in Philadelphia is a spectacular 11-story, 480,000 square-foot medical education and research building that features state-of-the-art facilities and technologies for medical education and research. It opened in 2009. With specialized research centers focused on population health, metabolic disease, cancer, heart disease and other strategic priorities, the school conducts investigations to break new ground – and trains future generations of researchers to follow suit.  On October 13, 2015, Temple's medical school was officially dedicated as the Lewis Katz School of Medicine – a historic milestone in the school’s history.    There are 20 clinical departments in the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, comprised of over 550 full-time faculty, 50 part-time faculty over 800 volunteer faculty, and more than 1000 employees. Each department is engaged in education, patient care and research. LKSOM takes pride in the excellence of its teaching, service and research programs. It remains fully accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education. Each year it admits 210 medical students and approximately 24 graduate students. With more than 13,000 alumni, represents a huge proportion of the physician base in the Delaware Valley. Reflecting the excellent quality of a Temple medical education, its M.D. graduates are highly regarded by competitive residency training programs, and have made significant career contributions to both medical practice and medical research. Many have become department chairpersons, deans and vice presidents of major academic medical centers.   About Patient Care Faculty members at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM) are well known as gifted teachers and innovative researchers, but it is their clinical expertise that draws patients from throughout the Philadelphia region and beyond. Widely respected for their knowledge and skill, Temple physicians treat hundreds of thousands of patients each year in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings throughout the Temple University Health System.   Temple has invested heavily in new clinical programs, technology and facilities in recent years. The School of Medicine has also recruited renowned physicians from around the country who have enhanced Temple’s capacity to expand its clinical mission well beyond its traditional boundaries. This growth and dynamism is transforming Temple from a leading Philadelphia academic medical center into a nationally renowned, top-tier medical institution.   Each year, dozens of Temple physicians are named “Top Doctors” by national and regional publications. In addition, Temple physicians are also involved in numerous clinical trials that are testing the latest therapies. This means Temple patients often have access to advanced treatment options not found at most hospitals.     Accessing Temple care is easier than ever thanks to a geographic expansion that has brought Temple physicians and staff into Temple-affiliated hospitals, Center City Philadelphia and the suburbs of Oaks and Fort Washington. While this expansion is significant, it has not lessened Temple’s commitment to its economically challenged North Philadelphia community. Here, Temple serves as a safety-net hospital and the largest provider of healthcare for individuals who have little or no ability to pay for the services they need.    Temple Faculty Physicians (TFP) https://medicine.temple.edu/patient-care/about-faculty-practice-tfp   Temple Faculty Physicians, the academic practice plan of Temple University Health System, is made up of more than 500 employed physicians who are the cornerstone of clinical care and teaching for Temple’s healthcare enterprise. These physicians practice in 20 academic departments encompassing virtually every subspecialty in modern medicine.   Temple physicians are clinician-educators and researchers. They are compassionately dedicated to their patients, are leaders in their fields and renowned for providing high-quality care. They are gifted teachers of medical students, residents and fellows at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University and Temple University Hospital. They are innovative researchers who are developing new treatments and pushing the boundaries of medical science.   While remaining committed to our mission of serving patients in our North Philadelphia community, in recent years, Temple Faculty Physicians has expanded its geographic reach beyond Temple University Hospital’s Health Sciences campus.  Today, Temple physicians care for patients in several Temple-affiliated hospitals, in satellite offices located in Center City Philadelphia, Fort Washington, PA, Oaks, PA and various other outpatient settings. This expanded reach has brought Temple medical care closer to home for many of our patients.   Temple Faculty Physicians is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of key physician and executive leaders of the Lewis Katz Temple University School of Medicine and the Temple University Health System.   Temple University Health System (TUHS) http://www.templehealth.org   Created in 1995 to manage Temple University's growing array of health care services, Temple University Health System (TUHS) is a $1.8 billion academic health system dedicated to providing access to quality patient care and supporting excellence in medical education and research.   The Health System consists of Temple University Hospital (TUH), ranked among the "Best Hospitals" in the region by U.S. News & World Report; TUH-Episcopal Campus; TUH-Northeastern Campus; Fox Chase Cancer Center, an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center; Jeanes Hospital; Temple Transport Team, a ground and air-ambulance company; and Temple Physicians, Inc., a network of community-based specialty and primary-care physician practices. TUHS is affiliated with Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University.   The health system maintains a vigorous and dynamic platform for teaching and education, while enhancing the health of the communities it serves.

They are faculty at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine and members of the Temple Lung Center a state-of-the-art program repeatedly recognized by U.S. News & World Report.   Temple Health Satellite Locations Temple Health is rapidly expanding its footprint for outpatient services – both in Philadelphia and its surrounding suburbs. Several locations are open now in Oaks, Ft. Washington, Elkins Park and Center City with plans to expand further in the near future. Patients across the region can now access Temple doctors in their own neighborhood for services such as orthopaedics, pulmonology, gastroenterology, urology, cardiology and much more.   Temple Health Center City www.templehealthcentercity.org   Temple Health Center City is a new office located in the Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia, staffed by TU P doctors. Patients can receive ongoing specialty care, pre- and post-operative consultation in this convenient downtown location.   LKSOM Research   About   The Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University has experienced dramatic growth in the breadth and scope of its research enterprise over the past decade. As part of its strategic plan and with the support of a successful recent capital campaign, our scientists have been responsible for ground-breaking advancements in areas across the scientific spectrum, including:   Cancer Biology, Cardiovascular and Thrombosis, Cell and Developmental Biology, Clinical Lung Research, HIV, Immunology and Autoimmunity, Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes, Neuroscience, Substance Abuse and Translational Medicine   A physical transformation in our research facilities occurred in 2009 when LKSOM opened the Medical Education and Research Building (MERB). This 450,000 square foot building is now home to more than half of LKSOM’s research scientists with open laboratory space that facilitates investigator/trainee interactions and collaboration.   Recognizing the need to provide its faculty with the tools to conduct state-of-the-art research, LKSOM has developed several core facilities which embellish the other cores and facilities already in existence. Together, they provide centralized access to equipment used by faculty in all departments, helping to reduce duplication of biomedical research.   Through generous faculty support coupled with the ability to attract some of the world's greatest scientific minds, LKSOM is an emerging leader in basic and clinical research. In the early 2000s, using only NIH funding criteria, LKSOM ranked 86th out of 121 allopathic schools in the U.S.   In research rankings, LKSOM is the second-highest ranked medical school in Philadelphia and the third-highest in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. LKSOM has established several new programs that are in the vanguard of scientific discovery. These include the Temple Lung Center and the Center for Neuroscience.   Research Programs   LKSOM has 8 Basic Science Departments and 13 Research Centers, all of which focus on improving the human condition through cutting edge research and the education and professional development of our graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.   Faculty is actively engaged in basic research and other scholarly activities designed to improve public health and strongly encourage residents to participate in scholarly activities as part of their training.   LKSOM provides its faculty centralized access to equipment and the tools to conduct state-of-the-art research, enabling our basic science and clinical research centers to emerge as leaders in the industry.     To improve human health, scientific discoveries must be translated into practical applications. Such discoveries typically begin at "the bench" with basic research — in which scientists study disease at a molecular or cellular level — then progress to the clinical level, or the patient's "bedside." Faculty in the School of Medicine's Basic Science and Clinical Departments are committed to the goal of translation. Our basic scientists provide clinicians with new tools for use in patients and for assessment of their impact, and clinical researchers make novel observations about the nature and progression of disease that often stimulate basic investigations.    Please visit https://medicine.temple.edu/research/research-programs to learn more about the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University research departments, centers and initiatives.   Diversity Statement Located in the heart of an economically distressed and diverse urban area, the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University is acutely aware of the impact of the national systemic problems related to the lack of health equity and access to affordable, culturally responsive healthcare. In response, we will address issues to promote health equity through education, care delivery, workforce development, and research.
