Tuesday, August 03, 2020

Scranton, Pennsylvania – On July 13, The Commonwealth Medical College (TCMC) hosted twenty eighth grade students from schools throughout northeast Pennsylvania who were participating in The University of Scranton’s University of Success program. The University of Success is a pre-college program designed to provide academic, social, and cultural enrichment to middle and high school students. The ultimate goal of the program is to assist participating students to successfully complete high school and gain entrance into a college or university.

During the students’ tour, they met with TCMC faculty and staff and learned about the school, toured the College’s Clinical Skills & Simulation Center and research labs, and squared off in a game show designed to test their science knowledge. Nearly a dozen TCMC faculty, staff and research interns participated in the event.
