Interconnected Faculty Families

While CHOP and Penn are independent entities, they foster a collegial atmosphere to facilitate academic exchange. Most CHOP Research investigators are members of the Penn faculty (CHOP-based Penn faculty members), and they follow both institutions’ policies and oversight. Trainees and students also benefit from this collaborative agreement through postdoctoral, fellowship, and residency programs.
