Welcome to Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine
At Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, our mission is to educate aspiring physicians and scientists to serve society.

A message from Dean Byerley
Medicine, healthcare and health-related research are most effective when informed by a deep understanding of the interplay of neighborhood, income and education — all the internal and external factors that influence health and well-being.
Our faculty are not only expert nurses, clinicians and teachers, but also scientists making discoveries that will improve health locally and beyond. Much of our research is translational and focuses on precision health implications for improving people’s lives.
Geisinger Commonwealth graduates are known for their brilliance and caring — authenticity coupled with superior clinical skills and knowledge. This is what a pragmatic approach to medical education delivers. If this is the future health professional you’d like to be, Geisinger Commonwealth is the place to learn.
