Students in the CNYMPH program enjoy dual enrollment in Upstate Medical University and Syracuse University. In addition to the many academic benefits of both institutions, CNYMPH students pay the lower State University of New York tuition and enjoy perks such as discounted or free tickets to Syracuse University sporting events.
The academic and intellectual advantages of the CNYMPH program come from its foundation in a public academic medical center and a prestigious private university.
Upstate Medical University is among the 127 medical schools in the U.S. accredited by the Association of American Medical Colleges. Upstate is the only academic medical center in Central New York. It has a teaching hospital and a children's hospital, and is continually expanding its clinical operations, research enterprise and academic offerings.
The CNYMPH program is housed in Upstate's College of Medicine, which along with the colleges of Nursing, Health Professions and Graduate Studies comprise Upstate Medical University.
The CNYMPH program's connection to Syracuse University is with the Maxwell School of Public Administration and the College of Law. The Maxwell School is regarded as the one of the country's best graduate schools of public management and international affairs. Maxwell includes seven social science departments and a network of eight research institutes, centers and programs. It offers 200 graduate courses taught by 150 full-time faculty members. Syracuse University's College of Law is known for its highly ranked trial advocacy programs. Students may take courses such as Public Health Law, Environmental Law, and Disability Law.
