St. Luke's and Temple University School of Medicine have partnered to develop the first and only medical school campus in the Lehigh Valley. Enrolled students complete their first year at Temple; followed by years two, three and four at St. Luke's University Hospital – Bethlehem. The inaugural class began August 2011. Full enrollment of 120 medical students, who will earn MD degrees, by August 2015. We expect to graduate 300 physicians in 10 years and retain 150 (50 percent) in the Lehigh Valley region.

Graduate Medical Education
The goal of our graduate medical education program is to train young physicians who will have the knowledge and skills to enter private practice and/or go into fellowships for further training. Each year, more than 140 residents train at St. Luke's, which is one of only 400 members of the prestigious Council of Teaching Hospitals.
