A teaching hospital, where
learning is a two‑way street
In fulfilling its mission to provide quality medical
education, Saint Peter’s sponsors residency
programs in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics
and Internal Medicine and is a regional medical
campus of Philadelphia’s Drexel University College
of Medicine, the largest private medical school in
the nation and a leader in health science education
and research.
Many teaching hospitals, including Saint Peter’s,
participate in research through which cutting‑edge
technology and new practices are introduced that
go beyond up‑to‑date and only may be available to
other hospitals in the future.
This matters to prospective parents—or any patient
admitted to Saint Peter’s—because educating
medical students and residents means the faculty
and staff at Saint Peter’s are always current with
new techniques and the latest practices. Patients
can benefit from the latest treatments available.
