The school enjoys a national reputation for training humanistic clinicians and biomedical scientists-a school that values not just technical excellence but cultural competence through diversity, equity, and inclusion. LKSOM enrolls 220 medical students, 22 graduate students in the biomedical sciences, 35 physician assistant students, and 40 post-baccalaureate students per year.   Katz School of Medicine has 27 basic science and clinical departments, consisting of over 900 full- and part-time faculty, 900 volunteer faculty, and more than 500 additional staff.   With more than 13,000 alumni, LKSOM has trained a significant proportion of the physician base in the Pennsylvania-New Jersey-Delaware region. Reflecting the excellent quality of a Temple medical education, the MD graduates are highly regarded by competitive residency training programs. They 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.   At Katz, students learn the true art and science of “doctoring.” In addition, the school’s world-class faculty set the pace in key areas of investigation, pushing the boundaries of science to advance patient care.   The Katz School of Medicine home base is a modern, 11-story medical education and research building with state-of-the-art facilities and technologies. The building opened in 2009 and boasts open-air research labs, smart classrooms, and a state-of-the-art anatomy lab. More than half of the space in the building is dedicated to research. With specialized research centers and strengths focused on population health, neuroscience, cancer, metabolic disease, lung disease, and inflammation, infectious diseases including HIV, cardiovascular disease, substance addiction, and translational science, Katz conducts investigations to break new ground and trains future generations of researchers to follow suit.   Katz confers the following degrees: MD; PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) and MS (Master of Science) in Biomedical Sciences; Physician Assistant MMS (Master of Medical Science); MA (Master of Arts) in Urban Bioethics, the only program in the country; and the dual degrees MD/PhD, MD/MPH, MD/MA in Urban Bioethics and MD/MBA.   In addition to its Philadelphia campus, Katz has a four-year regional campus in Bethlehem, PA. The St. Luke’s University Health Network-Bethlehem Campus currently provides medical education for 40 medical students each year.   The Katz School of Medicine also provides opportunities for internationalstudents through educational affiliation agreements with universities worldwide.

Conwell in 1884, Temple’s official motto - Perseverantia Vincit, or Perseverance Conquers - reflects its students’ drive to succeed and ability to turn opportunities into accomplishments. Conwell’s purpose was “to give education to those who were unable to get it through the usual channels.” In Temple’s earliest incarnation, working-class citizens were taught late in the evening and referred to as “night owls,” giving rise to the school’s mascot and team name.   In 1965, the University became a member of the Commonwealth System of Higher Education, one of three state-related, comprehensive research universities in Pennsylvania. In addition to its Main Campus in North Philadelphia, Temple has three additional locations in Philadelphia: Temple University Center City, the Health Sciences Center, also in North Philadelphia, and the School of Podiatric Medicine near Philadelphia’s historic district. Regional campuses are located in Ambler and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, with international campuses in Japan and Rome.   Temple’s influence extends around the globe, with longstanding campuses in Tokyo and Rome; programs in London, Beijing, and other locations; nearly 190 institutional collaborations in 43 countries; and more than 350,000 alumni worldwide. High graduation rates, accomplished graduate degree programs, new living and learning facilities and groundbreaking work in science education and research fuel Temple’s momentum. In the latest Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, Temple is in the “highest research activity” category, or R1, placing it among the top four percent of all four-year institutions in the nation.   Temple had a budget of $3.7 billion in FY2022, including $2.5 billion for the Temple University Health System and $1.2 billion for the University. Approximately 73 percent of the University’s operating budget is derived from tuition and fees, and 13 percent from the Commonwealth appropriation. The remaining budget comes from indirect cost recovery, gifts, auxiliary enterprises and other sources.   Temple offers 630 academic degree and certificate programs, including 2 associate degree programs, 176 bachelor’s programs, 182 master’s programs, 54 doctoral programs, and 13 professional practice degree programs. Temple is also among the nation’s largest providers of professional education, with approximately 3,800 students enrolled in the schools of dentistry, law, medicine, pharmacy, and podiatric medicine.   About Temple Health Temple University Health System (Temple Health) is a $2.5 billion academic health system dedicated to providing access to quality patient care and supporting excellence in medical education and research.
