Office of the President
Our mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve through education, biomedical research, and health care. Everything we do at Upstate—teaching students, discovering new knowledge through research, and caring for patients—is done to achieve that goal.
Health Care—As the only academic medical university for one-third of our state, SUNY Upstate is in a unique position to offer both high quality health care and educational opportunities to Central New York's 1.8 million citizens—and beyond.
Education—At Upstate, we educate more than 1,500 students in our four colleges—Medicine, Graduate Studies, Health Professions, Nursing—as well as on our Binghamton Campus. We also host 500 graduate physicians in our residency and fellowship training programs and provide continuing education to practitioners.
Research—Our fast-growing research enterprise is advanced by our faculty who are investigating more than 600 funded research projects.
We offer dozens of health care services that are unique to our region through Upstate University Hospital, Upstate University Hospital at Community Campus and at our outpatient clinics. We also house the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital to serve the region.
