Why I enjoy working at SUNY Downstate:

It is the only academic medical center in Brooklyn. You can find anyone and anything you want to accomplish your goals.  As I went to medical school at a more northern SUNY, I support the local branch of the people’s medical school to pay back for that opportunity.
