Toohil Hosts Student Tour of The Commonwealth Medical College
HAZLETON – In an effort to increase awareness among high school students of the educational opportunities available to them in the area, Rep. Tarah Toohil (R-Luzerne) hosted a tour of The Commonwealth Medical College (TCMC) in Scranton.

Toohil and a group of ninth-grade students from the Hazleton Academy of Science (STEM) visited the school on Thursday, Oct. 15. Toohil worked with STEM Vice Principal Marie Ernst to arrange the bus trip.

“The Commonwealth Medical College is spreading the growth of medical professions throughout northeastern Pennsylvania and the entire Commonwealth,” said Toohil. “We want our high school students to know that a career in health and medicine is an extremely attainable goal. A student that goes into the health field will find that there is a high demand for professionals in this area. We are hoping that the field trip further encouraged our students to dream big.”

TCMC, which opened its doors in 2011, is a fully accredited medical college that offers a community-based model of medical education with four regional campuses. The college attracts students from within its 17-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.

“Data shows that many medical professionals stay in the region in which they are trained,” Toohil added. “TCMC gives preference to applicants who are from Pennsylvania and the northeast. This is important for our students to know.”
