Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine Regional Campus, Clinical Phase Student Affairs Support

Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine covers counties in northeastern and central Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey, with five regional campuses in Atlantic City, Danville, Lewistown, Sayre and the Northeast (Scranton and Wilkes-Barre). Each campus plays an integral part of the school’s distributive model of medical education and provides students with early clinical experiences in diverse settings. The Division of Student Affairs supports students during clinical phases of the curriculum through the regional assistant deans of student affairs, who are housed on each clinical site in conjunction with the centers listed above. 


We advocate on your behalf in whatever capacity is needed, as appropriate. We care about your experience and do whatever we can to help you succeed.  


Students trust us because we trust them. We build relationships with you, so you know you are supported by the Geisinger College of Health Sciences community.  


We adapt as needed. We process institutional adjustments and the ever-changing healthcare landscape and make it digestible and easier to understand.  


We have critical, sometimes challenging conversations that are crucial for your success and retention. 


We build student and community trust through our expertise and proven track record of consistently graduating a well-rounded and professionally capable student body.
