Our College of Medicine students are involved in a variety of outreach and volunteer activities. These provide them experiences outside of the hospital and an opportunity to help the community.
That "community" can be a few blocks away at a school... or the next county over in a migrant worker camp... or halfway around the world at a free clinic—wherever help is needed.

One Student's Story
Mikki Kollisch, Class of 2011
Second-year medical student Mikki Kollisch wants to be a surgeon. "I love the hands-on work, and I love anatomy," she said.
But Kollisch also loves the very personal side of medicine, which she experienced as a summer volunteer at SUNY Upstate's clinics for migrant workers in Central New York.
