About the College of Medicine

When the College of Medicine was founded 160 years ago, it revolutionized medical education in the United States. It was the first medical school founded within a hospital, making bedside training an integral part of students' education.

Today, the SUNY Downstate College of Medicine is committed to educating doctors from all backgrounds for a diverse workforce in the fight against health disparities.
