Leading for 160 Years. And counting.
In 1860, the College of Medicine that became Downstate was the world's first to bring medical students to patient bedsides. Today, we're changing education by not just emphasizing patient care, but student support, as well. The rigorous standard of our training remains the same. But we're doing more than ever to ensure your voice is heard through our student-first philosophy.
Trained here. Trusted everywhere.
More doctors in New York City trained at Downstate than any other medical college. We offer training in 56 specialties across our five schools and colleges, teaching nearly 1,900 students a year.
