Interim Dean,
College of Medicine

We are a large medical school in a city that is growing rapidly to meet the demands of the future. The acquisition of nearby Community General Hospital, in addition our own University Hospital, affords Upstate a larger clinical footprint for education and patient care. We have added to our infrastructure with the recent addition of new classroom space, lab space, a children's hospital, a cancer center, and new student housing. The growth of our research enterprise over the last ten years by almost 50% further supports our unique academic mission.
