Philadelphia is the home of the first hospital in the United States - Pennsylvania Hospital. It is no surprise that our pathology program has a tradition of excellence. It is true that when most people think of Philadelphia, they may think of the City of Brotherly Love, its colonial and Revolutionary War history, or maybe even the celebrated cheesesteak. But when we think of Philadelphia, we just like to say what a fabulous place it is to live. Quaint neighborhood shops and cafes provide an eclectic atmosphere that is bustling year-round. From University City to Queen Village, from East Passyunk to Fishtown, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Modern retail and entertainment complexes throughout the area promise yet more excitement, all accessible through the robust public transportation infrastructure.
