Graduate Medical Education at Thomas Jefferson University

Our mission at Thomas Jefferson University is to educate the future clinicians, researchers and professors who will transform healthcare for the better.

We want residents who ask questions, rise to challenges and work hard. We are looking for individuals who work together to solve problems,are self-driven to be lifelong learners and embrace forward-thinking medical practices. We want people who are invested in helping their patients not just get better, but live better.

Thomas Jefferson University's Office for Student Affairs and Career Counseling (OSACC) provides important information and resources to help you successfully navigate your way through the residency application, interviewing and matching processes.
