Vision, Mission & Goals
The Alumni Association-College of Medicine's primary mission is to provide financial support and services to medical students, to enhance their experience during their 4 years at Downstate.
Student Supported Programs
Providing financial support to the medical students and school is our top priority. The Alumni Association supports many programs for medical students including:
The Association is committed to enhancing the medical education and training of the Downstate medical students. Alumni participate in the mentoring and career mentoring programs to help students feel welcome and supported at SUNY Downstate and share their expertise to help students choose their specialty.
The Alumni Association acts as a liaison between the medical school faculty and students to promote a positive learning environment. Parents whose children are considering or applying to Downstate can speak with a Board member to discuss the application process and criteria. Members of the Alumni Association also sit on the Medical School Admissions Committee to ensure that children of alumni have advocates on their behalf.
