Upstate Medical Center
SUNY Upstate Medical University consists of four colleges that educate future doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, biomedical scientists and other health professionals. Two colleges at Upstate—Nursing and Health Professions—are upper-division transfer and graduate colleges and are open to college juniors, seniors, and graduate students; however, students may apply while in high school to secure a position in the program of their choice.
The College of Health Professions and the College of Nursing offer an array of bachelor's and master's degree programs as well as an entry level and transitional doctorate of physical therapy program. All programs at Upstate are designed to improve human health. Health professionals are in high demand nationwide and nearly all Upstate students are offered employment prior to graduation. Some programs have direct patient contact and others are lab based, with little or no patient contact.
Our students learn to use the latest technology while working alongside medical professionals in clinical and laboratory settings. In the classroom, the small class size allows for a great deal of individual attention—and students grow close to each other and the faculty.
Located in New York State's fourth-largest city, Upstate is part of a dynamic hub known as University Hill. Syracuse is a vibrant college town and the Upstate campus offers 40 student organizations, intramural sports and activities for every interest.
