Identification Badges

All Residents irrespective of salary source are required to carry a SUNY-DOWNSTATE Identification Badge. This badge allows you to enter University buildings, utilize the University's Medical Library, other campus facilities, and identifies you as an officer of the State University of New York.

To obtain or renew a SUNY-DOWNSTATE picture I.D.,  residents must complete onboarding or reappointment requirements and come to the GME Office Monday - Friday 9:00 AM to 5:00 pm. The GME Office will verify that the residents' credentials are up to date, after which a letter will be provided for issuance of an ID. ID cards are issued to new residents only if their credentialing file is complete and to continuing residents only if their reappointment process is complete.

ID Cards are issued by ID Card Office: 825 New York Avenue, Rm1-105B (ground floor of dormitory building entered through gate on Lenox Road). ID Office hours are: Monday - Friday, 10:00am-4:00pm. You may call first to confirm (718) 270-4600 hours of operation.

Lost Cards can be replaced for a fee of $40.00. Residents must go the Bursar's office, obtain a receipt, then report to the GME Office. For more information call (718) 270-4600.
