March 8, 2024

Team Upstate:


On behalf of the MEC, I’d like to express our appreciation for everything you do to improve the lives of your patients and our community.


In preparation for the celebration of Doctor's Day at the end of this month (30 MAR 2024) we have opened up ordering for fleece Upstate Medical University vests. The Medical Executive Committee (MEC) is happy to purchase a vest for every physician on the medical staff and also for members of the medical staff not typically celebrated during APP week [physicians, dentists, podiatrists, credentialed clinical Psychologists and Psychiatry Post docs(PhD/PsyD), optometrists(OD), doctors of chiropractic (DC), credentialed social workers providing therapy services (MSW, LCSW, LMSW), and credentialed Master’s therapists (LMHC and LMFT)].  


Orders will be taken through March 31, 2024, and may be placed online at


Once orders arrive, messages will be sent out describing the process for collecting your vest.  


Thanks for reading.
