Educational Enterprise

Approximately half of the students at Upstate are enrolled in the College of Medicine. The College also houses the Masters of Public Health, a joint degree program with nearby Syracuse University.

Among its many responsibilities, the Dean's Office in the College of Medicine oversees the curriculum for medical students, the faculty appointments for both the College of Medicine and the College of Graduate Studies, and the Division of Student Affairs, which offers support and services for all Upstate students — from recruitment to graduation.

The College of Medicine receives approximately 5,000 applications each year for 160 spots. Its newer facilities include a gross anatomy lab and a clinical skills teaching center for standardized patient encounters. Located on "University Hill" in Syracuse, the College is adjacent to Upstate University Hospital, Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital and the Syracuse VA Medical Center. Its Binghamton Campus offers a long-established community-based medical education experience for third and fourth-year students.
