Welcome to SUNY Upstate Medical University's College of Graduate Studies. Our University is part of an academic medical center, one of only 134 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. 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 Principal Investigator and a lab. They are given responsibility for research projects, and take ownership of their work.
Soon, the students are also the experts. Consider joining us—our door is open.
