The College of Medicine boasts a diverse student body, with approximately 160 students admitted each year out of more than 5,000 who apply.

The students accepted at SUNY Upstate represent a wide range of backgrounds, life stories and professional and personal interests. If there is a common denominator among our medical students, it is this: they share a passion to become compassionate physicians.
