About the Faculty Practice (TFP)
Temple Faculty Physicians, the academic practice plan of Temple University Health System, is made up of more than 500 employed physicians who are the cornerstone of clinical care and teaching for Temple’s healthcare enterprise. These physicians practice in 20 academic departments encompassing virtually every subspecialty in modern medicine.
Temple physicians are clinician-educators and researchers. They are compassionately dedicated to their patients, are leaders in their fields and renowned for providing high-quality care. They are gifted teachers of medical students, residents and fellows at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University and Temple University Hospital. They are innovative researchers who are developing new treatments and pushing the boundaries of medical science.
While remaining committed to our mission of serving patients in our North Philadelphia community, in recent years, Temple Faculty Physicians has expanded its geographic reach beyond Temple University Hospital’s Health Sciences campus. Today, Temple physicians care for patients in several Temple-affiliated hospitals, in satellite offices located in Center City Philadelphia, Fort Washington, PA, Oaks, PA and various other outpatient settings. This expanded reach has brought Temple medical care closer to home for many of our patients.
Temple Faculty Physicians is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of key physician and executive leaders of the Lewis Katz Temple University School of Medicine and the Temple University Health System. The board is chaired by the Dean of the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University.
