Do you find your greatest satisfaction when you are serving others with your knowledge and skills? Are you excited by the challenges of scientific discovery and application? Do you enjoy communication with others, listening, empathizing, as well as sharing your knowledge? Do you aspire to the highest standards in the tasks you undertake?

If you answered yes to these questions, then medicine may be right for you. I recommend you look closely at Temple/St. Luke’s. As a regional campus of Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, you will receive an unsurpassed education right here in the Lehigh Valley.
