Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine
Healthcare is changing. Interprofessional teams, rather than solitary and unconnected providers, now deliver care. Technologies like electronic health records and gene sequencing are necessary tools rather than novelties. The very foundation of medicine has shifted to wellness, rather than disease intervention, and there’s a growing recognition that things like neighborhood, income and education all play a vital role that medical professionals must understand before they can truly see and treat the whole person.
Tomorrow’s physicians and scientists must be equipped to approach medicine and research on both a macro and a micro level — capable of discerning and curing the systemic, societal causes of disease, as well as ready to render compassionate care, one patient at a time.
That’s why, in addition to the MD, Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine will offer other outstanding degree programs, including master’s degrees in genomics and informatics. We also have more than 440 trainees in 24 graduate medical education programs and 19 accredited fellowships from addiction medicine to vascular surgery and will grow additional programs based on the needs of our communities.
As a young school born of innovation and integrated with a health system that is a national model of excellence for person-centered care, Geisinger Commonwealth offers a unique and distinct education. Leveraging Geisinger’s acclaimed clinical and technological strengths — including its international prominence in genetics and genomics — we emphasize active learning and community engagement. For these reasons, Geisinger Commonwealth graduates are known for both skill and caring.
