Thomas Jefferson University consists of four constituent colleges, Jefferson Medical College, Jefferson College of Graduate Studies, and Jefferson College of Health Professions, and Jefferson School of Population Health. An infirmary to treat the poor was opened in 1825, and by 1844, Jefferson was providing patient beds over a shop at 10th and Sansom Streets.
A hospital, one of the first in the nation affiliated with a medical school, opened in 1877, and a school for nurses began in 1891.
At Jefferson students learn in a community of clinicians, physicians, researchers, and educators, and they have access to world-class facilities and learning opportunities. The collaboration that happens here is an important part of educating members of the healthcare team to work together. This university is an academic health center. It consists of Jefferson
Medical College, the Jefferson College of Graduate Studies, the Jefferson College of Health Professions
and associated University services. Thomas Jefferson University is dedicated to the health sciences.
The University Office of Student Financial Aid assists students in securing federal, state, institutional and private funding to help meet the cost of pursuing an undergraduate allied health, graduate or medical education at TJU.Research
Integration stimulates greater opportunity for scientists and clinicians to collaborate on research activities that extend from the laboratory to the patient bedside and into the community. From basic science through clinical trials,university's clinical and research teams will work together to address today's most pressing health concerns.
But no institution can provide depth in every area of medical investigation. While research on myriad medical problems will continue at Jefferson, TJU will concentrate particularly on key areas that represent major health challenges, and which also will integrate efforts across our research, teaching domains and education.
