  • This campus has expanded greatly to encompass a large area in West Philadelphia. Lots of unusual modern buildings on this very urban campus.

  • I am under the care of Dr. Corey K. Ruth, MD for Orthopedics and he is awesome!! The staff is very friendly and helpful. They get you in, and out, not rushing you, I guess the scheduling is done to perfection. I love it !!!
  • One of the top four co-op programs in the country and there are some pretty cool opportunities here, but the school won't hold your hand to find them. Some of the professors are very helpful if you put forth the effort. Be prepared for incredibly dense curricula
