The SUNY Upstate Residency Program began in 1952. We currently have a team of 20 residents, assigning 5 residents for each post-graduate year. The medical facilities in Syracuse serve a 21 county area as a major referral center and thus draw patients from the entire region as well as the population of the metropolitan area.

- Each resident is assigned a clinic session and his/her patients are followed continuously throughout residency.
- The resident's academic training is further enhanced by research projects.
- During the third year, residents present a formal case review and, in the fourth year, residents give a formal research project presentation.
- The results of residents' research are presented annually during a spring Senior and Chief Residents' Scientific Forum.
