Special Admissions Option—
Early Assurance Physician Program (SUNY Cobleskill)
Website: SUNY Cobleskill Admissions Office
This is a guaranteed acceptance program for first-year students at SUNY Cobleskill who are interested in primary care and who meet the following academic requirements:
- 90% High School Grade Point Average
- 1200 combined SAT Scores (Math & Verbal only) or 27 ACT Composite
- 3 Years of High School Math & Science
- 3.50 Cobleskill Grade Point Average

Students who qualify attend SUNY Cobleskill for two years in the Health Science Studies A.S. program, enroll at Cornell University or Siena College for an additional two years of study, and then enter the College of Medicine at SUNY Upstate Medical University. New York State students from rural communities and students who increase the diversity of the medical profession are highly encouraged to apply.
Acceptance into these programs indicates your willingness to participate in the Rural Medical Scholars Program (RSMP). You will therefore be assigned to the RMSP track as a medical student at SUNY Upstate Medical University.

Dean, 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.
