Mantosh J. Dewan, MD
Interim Dean, College of Medicine
Dr. Dewan's service at Upstate spans more than four decades, beginning in 1975 when he served as a psychiatry intern. Since then, he has held numerous faculty positions in the Department of Psychiatry, including a 12-year tenure as the department's chair.
Dr. Dewan has provided distinguished service to Upstate and the community and has been recognized for his research, teaching, clinical care, administrative and community service. In 2009, Dr. Dewan was appointed to the rank of Distinguished Service Professor by the State University of New York Board of Trustees. It is one of the highest honors SUNY bestows on faculty.
The clinical mission of Upstate Medical University is distinguished by the fact that its physicians are faculty members in the College of Medicine. In this environment, faculty members treat the most complicated patients, often in consultation with other specialists, host grand rounds for area physicians and caregivers and lead education for medical residents and students.
The Dean's Office of the College of Medicine oversees the hiring and faculty appointments of medical staff who practice at Upstate University Hospital, its many clinical sites, and the appointment of volunteer faculty who also have teaching roles in the community.
The Chairs of University Hospital's 18 clinical departments all report directly to the Dean of the College of Medicine.
Upstate is the only academic medical center in Central New York and its clinical service area covers one-third of New York State.
