State University of New York Upstate Medical University traces its origins to 1834 with the opening of one of the nation's first medical schools in Geneva, NY. Syracuse University took over the Geneva Medical College in 1871 and renamed it the College of Medicine at Syracuse University.


Upstate Medical University's educational mission is anchored by its four colleges—Medicine, Nursing, Health Professions and Graduate Studies (biomedical sciences). Since 2006, student enrollment has grown by 30% as Upstate responds to the needs of the region.rk, Upstate's mission is to improve the health of the community through education, biomedical research and health care.


This office oversees compliance, research integrity, responsible conduct of research, tech transfer, and industry outreach.Research administration provides service to faculty and staff seeking to obtain research funding. The sponsored programs post-award office provides comprehensive grants management services once a research account has been established.


We see academic advising and career development not as distinct endeavors, but rather as points on a continuum. As such, in 2014, we began our learning communities program in which each of our classes are divided into smaller cohorts that have community-established identities. Named after our region’s Finger Lakes, each community is made up of students from each of the four classes and is facilitated by a team of faculty and professionals.
