College of Medicine

Welcome to the Upstate University College of Medicine. I am particularly honored to serve as Dean of the College of Medicine. As an alumnus of the Class of 1979 and a member of the faculty since 1986, I have been extraordinarily pleased at the growth of the Medical School over this time and proud of the work of its faculty and graduates.

The College of Medicine produces outstanding graduates who continue to do exceptionally well in obtaining high quality residencies, and whose entering and graduation profiles demonstrate academic excellence.

We are a large medical school in a city that is growing rapidly to meet the demands of the future. The recent acquisition of nearby Community General Hospital, in addition our own University Hospital, affords Upstate a larger clinical footprint for education and patient care. We have added to our infrastructure with the recent addition of new classroom space, lab space, a children's hospital, a cancer center, and new student housing. The growth of our research enterprise over the last ten years by almost 50% further supports our unique academic mission.

We are in a strong place to meet our challenges as well as those presented by the evolution of the health care system. Students who come to Upstate will be well prepared to enter a rewarding career. Please feel free to look around our website. I welcome you to Upstate Medical University.
