Dear Students & Faculty:
We live during a period of rapid growth and change, and undoubtedly questions will arise about issues in the College of Medicine. Feel free to send them my way and I will either answer them personally or find someone who can help you. I also welcome your observations and suggestions about what we do well and what we can do better.
I look forward to hearing from you.

The Office of the Dean oversees the functions of the College of Medicine, which include all aspects of Upstate's mission: Education, Research and Patient Care.
Nearly 500 College of Medicine faculty members provide education for 750 medical, graduate and master's of public health students at Upstate. In the community, 2,000 volunteer faculty precept our students during the clinical aspects of their education.
Faculty in our 18 clinical service lines deliver care at Upstate University Hospital, the region's only level-1 trauma center and home to the region's only children's hospital.
Biomedical research at Upstate is dedicated to some of the most pressing issues related to human health and disease.
Each of these areas is growing, with increases in student admissions, research funding, and patients served.
