Orientation to Upstate
Welcome to SUNY Upstate Medical University. Upstate's greatest asset is its people, and I am glad you are joining us.
Upstate Medical University is a dynamic environment that brings together patient care, education and research. We are one of only 125 academic medical centers in the nation, and the only one in Central New York. We serve a 15,000-square-mile area (covering one third of the land in the state) and we are Onondaga County's largest employer. Every activity here is ultimately related to improving the health of the community.
When I started my job here, I adopted Engaging Excellence as my motto. It means to aspire and achieve work of the highest standard. I invite YOU to join me in this goal as you begin your journey here.
