Why Give to Jefferson

At Jefferson, health is all we do.

Jefferson trains more physicians than any other institution. Jefferson is one of only seven health-science universities in the nation, offering professional training in biomedical science, bioscience technologies, pharmacy, nursing, bioethics and health policy.

Jefferson alumni practice in all 50 states, and many also work as researchers for leading drug companies. As the pharmaceutical industry migrates its research and development efforts toward academia, Jefferson is poised to play a leading role.

Thomas Jefferson University provides excellent clinical and compassionate care for patients in our hospitals in the Philadelphia region, and we educate the health professionals of tomorrow in a variety of disciplines while discovering new knowledge that will define the future of clinical care.

Jefferson ranks in the top 10 facilities in the Philadelphia metro area (2nd) and Pennsylvania (4th) in the U.S. News & World Report's annual listing of top hospitals. 

Jefferson also is nationally ranked in:
  • Cancer
  • Ear, Nose & Throat
