School Overview

School Info

Founded in 1824, Jefferson Medical College has awarded more than 27,000 medical degrees and has more living graduates than any other medical school in the nation. It offers both traditional medical education programs and innovative joint degree programs to its enrollment of approximately 900 students each year.

Curriculum

Two years of preclinical instruction are provided in areas of basic science followed by two years of clinical instruction. However, there is considerable integration across the four years. For example, the preclinical curriculum includes patient contact in the first year, and the clinical curriculum includes basic science reinforcement in the last year. The entire curriculum is organized to provide our students with the solid scientific, factual and clinical basis to pursue, successfully, generalized or specialized postgraduate training.

Facilities

Jefferson Medical College is situated on a thirteen acre urban campus in Center City. Located in the College Building are the College's administrative offices as well as laboratories, Foerderer Hall, the Herbut Auditorium, small lecture rooms, and the administrative offices of many of the academic departments. The adjoining Curtis Building also houses academic departments, laboratories, and small classrooms. Academic departments and laboratories, the Solis-Cohen and Brent Auditoriums, and three smaller lecture halls are located in Jefferson Alumni Hall in addition to a cafeteria and the University's recreational facilities and swimming pool.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
