Perelman School
Renaming Information

In June 2011, the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine was renamed as the Raymond and Ruth Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. This name does not replace Penn Medicine, which remains the overarching brand representing the tri-fold missions of education, research, and clinical care.
