The Commonwealth Medical College (TCMC) is one of the nation’s newest medical colleges located in northeast and north central Pennsylvania that offers a community-based model of medical education with three regional campuses - north (Scranton), south (Wilkes-Barre) and west (Williamsport). The College was awarded degree granting authority by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 2008, received preliminary LCME (Liaison Committee on Medical Education) accreditation in 2008; provisional accreditation in 2012, and accepted its first class of medical and master's students in 2009. TCMC offers a Medical Degree (MD) program, Master of Biomedical Sciences (MBS) degree, and Professional Science of Masters degree.
The College attracts students from within its 16-county region as well as across Pennsylvania and the nation who are interested in studying evidence- and community-based medicine and who have a strong desire to serve their community. The students have early clinical experiences and are engaged with clinical mentors right from the start of their education.
