Office of Student Affairs

Welcome to the Office of Student Affairs at SUNY Upstate's Binghamton Campus!

The mission of the Office of Student Affairs at the Binghamton Campus is to assist, recruit and educate a diverse group of future physicians who will aspire to and maintain the highest standards of excellence in their personal and professional lives.  Within the Office of Student Affairs, we strive to provide an atmosphere of support and resources that will enable each student to successfully complete the requirements for the MD degree.

The office works closely with the Student Affairs team in Syracuse to provide you with all aspects of advising from electives to residency planning, to relocation assistance and adjustment to living in the Greater Binghamton Region.

We look forward to helping you pave the way to future fulfillment and success, and please feel free to stop by should you have questions or concerns.

Selection of Students for the Binghamton Campus

student in class

All College of Medicine students spend their first two years at SUNY Upstate Medical University-Syracuse Campus. Approximately one-quarter of the entering class of 160 students will spend the third and fourth years at the Binghamton Clinical Campus.

Soon after the admissions interview, each applicant is asked to indicate a campus preference, Syracuse or Binghamton. The admissions committee reviews applications, blind to the campus preference. Upon acceptance to the College of Medicine, the applicant's preference will be taken into account and a campus assigned.

Students who spend their third and fourth years at the Binghamton Campus live off campus and must have cars. Clinical campus staff help students find housing and adjust to life in a new city.

Class of 2008, Pediatrics Resident

"When I accepted the offer for admission at Upstate Medical University I made a decision, admittedly without much research, to complete my third and fourth year of medical school at the clinical campus in Binghamton. That decision turned out to be one of the best decisions that I have ever made. I made such a critical decision based solely on the fact that the Clinical Campus was advertised as being more focused on continuity of care. Since I had always seen myself as a general practicing pediatrician it sounded like a perfect fit." Read more.
