Faculty Chairs

“A lot of the faculty have been here for years, and they feel the commitment and share the same mission not only to the community, but to each other.”

- Amy Goldberg, MD FACS, Section Chief, Trauma and Surgical Critical Care

Temple Health attracts and retains excellent faculty members by offering competitive salary and benefit packages. To recruit or retain a clinician or scientist of truly exceptional accomplishment, however, requires the offer of an endowed chair.

Endowed chairs are more than essential aspects of image and reputation. They are crucial to the pursuit of new ideas in research and education.

When a distinguished faculty member’s position has been endowed by a donor, Temple Health can devote the funds it ordinarily spends on that professor’s salary to operational funds that she or he will use to conduct research or develop clinical programs to advance the medical frontier.

To make a gift to a faculty chair at the School of Medicine, please contact Nina Weisbord, Chief Advancement Officer: 215.707.3023
