As the oldest and one of the most highly-regarded medical schools in the United States, the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine is at the forefront of innovations in medical education, training and research. Since its founding in 1765, the medical school remains firmly committed to the community and takes pride in educating the leaders of tomorrow in patient care, medical education and biomedical research.
Medical students, residents, fellows and nursing students work toward achieving academic excellence. In doing so, they learn to apply the principles and skills of compassionate care to all patients served within the Penn community. This is the hallmark of the Penn learning experience.
