College of Graduate Studies

Welcome to SUNY Upstate Medical University's College of Graduate Studies. Our University is part of an academic medical center, one of only 140 in the country, and is home to a well-funded, interdisciplinary research enterprise.

This is a forward-thinking university that fosters a supportive environment as it maintains high standards of intellectual excellence. Our graduate students in the biomedical sciences enjoy a student faculty ratio of nearly one-to-one. Our students consistently praise the individual attention they receive from their advisors, and they also enjoy mentoring from upper-level graduate students and other researchers across campus.

Right from the start, graduate students are empowered to make the best choices for their future careers. They choose three lab rotations their first year before deciding on a faculty research advisor and a lab. They are given responsibility for research projects, and take ownership of their work. Soon, our students transition from consumers of information to producers of information, on their track to a career in research.
