Jefferson's model for healthcare education depends on a true community of professionals and scholars whose members learn with and from one another, embrace each other's contributions and collaborate to provide the finest care possible.
As an academic health center, Jefferson's campus includes:
- Jefferson Medical College
- Jefferson School of Nursing
- Jefferson School of Pharmacy
- Jefferson School of Health Professions
- Jefferson School of Population Health
- Jefferson Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences
- Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals
Jefferson InterProfessional Education Center (JCIPE) is dedicated to improving patient care by implementing and evaluating patient-centered, interprofessional education throughout the University curriculum and by sponsoring initiatives like Move4Health and the Health Mentors Program.
The University Clinical Skills & Simulation Center (UCSSC) simulates the hospital environment in a standardized fashion, allowing students to learn clinical skills and providing opportunities for structured practice. Fundamental skills, including patient history-taking and physical examination, are embedded into students' classroom work. What they learn in class is translated into actions in the skills that are learned at the Center.
