Welcome to Internal Medicine Residency Program

Thank you for your interest in the Internal Medicine Program at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY. We are proud of an innovative program that allows our residents to prepare for careers in primary health care, subspecialty training, academic medicine, and community health.

We're a fully accredited residency program with a substantial referral area. Patients range from inner-city underserved populations to the suburban middle/upper class. Our residents care for these patients under the direction of a dedicated, accessible, and personable faculty. There's a lot to learn from fascinating patients in a welcoming, yet challenging environment. This is evident by our 99% ABIM board pass rate over the last 10 years. Our residents come from a wide range of backgrounds and they establish tight relationships with each other and our faculty and staff, as they become part of our family here in Syracuse.

Whatever your goals are, we will help you achieve them. So browse our pages and learn more about our training, our facilities, our city, and more importantly, the lives of the people who make this program an outstanding place for resident training.
