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.
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.
