Clinical Campus Options
All Norton College of Medicine students spend their first two years at the Upstate Medical University campus in Syracuse. At the start of the third year, one-fourth of the class moves to the Binghamton Clinical Campus, one hour south of Syracuse for their third year, and most elect to stay for their fourth. The rest of the class remains in Syracuse.
Applicants select their campus preferences two weeks after their Interview Day and are assigned to clinical campuses upon acceptance to the Norton College of Medicine. Students select their campus based on the educational experience they believe will suit them best, and there is no difference in residency placements or students' board scores between the two campuses. The experiences, however, are different and we hope the summaries of the Binghamton Experience and the Syracuse Experience help you to make your selection.
