Program areas at TCMC

Academic program Geisinger Commonwealth school of medicine (gcsom) offers three separate degree programs: a doctor of medicine (md) program, a master of biomedical science (mbs) program and a professional science master's degree program. Gcsom also collaborates with the university of sciences to offer master's level degree and certificate programs in genetics, health informatics and healthcare administration. Gcsom focuses biomedical research and training programs on health issues prevalent in northeastern and north central Pennsylvania, a 17-county region with 1.8 million residents. The region has an aging population,19.5 percent of residents are older than age 65, compared to 15.1 percent nationally. Moreover, the region has high incidences of breast, lung, colorectal and prostate cancers, as well as high incidences of non- hodgkin's lymphoma, other chronic disease associated with aging, and significant needs in primary care, mental/behavioral health and community medicine. Md students serve the community from the moment they arrive at gcsom. They are assigned to one of gcsom regional campuses, where they will volunteer at non profit agencies and train in medical settings. The regional campuses are scranton, wilkes barre, danville and guthrie(sayre). For their first two years, students are paired with a multi-generational family coping with a disability of chronic illness. This is done to facilitate students' understanding from the entire family's perspective. Students gain early clinical experience as they work with a physician mentor during three one- week rotations in the regions during their first and second years of medical school. Students also participate in a longitudinal community health intervention project within their regions to gain research experience, to investigate and/or solve a community health issue, to make an immediate improvement in their regional campus community and to enhance the health of the region's citizens. In addition, all md candidates are required to complete 100 community service hours. Gcsom students have volunteered more than 50,000 hours since the college's inception. The students organize blood drives and health fairs, tutor local children, collect food and warm clothing for the homeless and complete many other helpful acts that immerse them in and improve the well-being of the commumity. The mbs curriculum has been designed to provide students with a unique, personal education that will help them to achieve their career goals. A commitment to student-centered learning is combined with individualized career and education planning services. The mbs program is offered in three formats, full time, part time or online. The mbs program is directed toward students who are either seeking to strengthen their credentials for application to medical/health profession school or who want to work in public health, scientific research or in other health and health-related industries (such as life sciences,pharmaceuticals or medical device firms). In march 2020, the world health organization declared the outbreak of covid-19 to be a global pandemic. At that time, gcsom moved to a fully online learning platform for the remainder of the academic year but returned in the fall 2020 semester with a combination of in person and online courses. The college's temporary closure, of the campus for in person classes, resulted in a decision to refund a pro-rated amount of certain fees to students no longer coming into the building. The funding source of these refunds was federal stimulus monies received by the college as cares institutional aid. These funds increased grants revenue for the fiscal year. Gcsom is continually monitoring the potential impacts of the covid-19 pandemic and the effects on its operations and financail performance. The extent to which the covid-19 pandemic impacts operations going forward will depend on numerous evolving factors, which cannot be reliably predicted at this time.
Student affairs: the student affairs & financial aid team supports gcsom's institutional mission and values by fostering students' academic, professional and personal growth. Gcsom admits academically successful, passionate, innovative and community-minded student with aptitude for biomedical sciences and a sincere commitment to improving the quality of healthcare. The office provides a host of personal, academic and referral services to enhance the interpersonal and educational experiences of gcsom students. Student affairs promotes student engagement and participation in social, cultural and intellectual life at gcsom. The office is the principal advisor to student councils, clubs and organizations. The office also works with students for career advising and planning, and assists with identifying the financial resources needed to achieve their individual educational goals.

Research programs: the gcsom research mission is to improve the health and well-being of its 17-county community through the collaborative discovery and dissemination of knowledge gained through research, technology development, community engagement and education. Because it is our vision to be in service to our community, we strive to be a catalyst for strategic research partnerships, to be a leader for advancing biomedical research and to be a keystone for improving health outcomes through translational research. We incorporate values of collaboration, integrity, innovation, translation and engagement. At gcsom, students have the opportunity to conduct research under the mentorship and guidance of distinguished faculty. Research projects developed by faculty research mentors who are seeking research assistants are described below. These are positions for which students do not need substantial experience, yet these research activities and the mentors who guide them provide unique and rich educational opportunities. Gcsom has multiple, organized research opportunities, including the summer research program, for students entering their second year of medical school at gcsom.
