Teaching Facilities

The University

Medical students are encouraged to expand the intellectual base of their individual learning, both in areas of evident medical relevance and in the limitless range of arts and sciences. The walking distance between the University's facilities makes it possible for students to continue their liberal education for another four years, if they should choose to do so. The "One University Concept" allows medical students to take courses in another division of the University without additional cost. For more information please visit the Additional Course Policy on the Student Portal at http://www.med.upenn.edu/student/.
