Welcome to SUNY Upstate Medical Universitys Internal Medicine Residency Training Program.
By way of introduction, I would like to share with you a story about a twenty-one year-old Southern Californian who left his family and friends in 1993 to come to medical school at what is now known as Upstate Medical University. At the time knowing this east coast excursion was only a 4-year commitment and that he would undoubtedly return home to California for residency training in Internal Medicine, he never imagined in his wildest dreams that he would rank, and, subsequently, match at the #1 program on his list—Upstate Medical University.
Why did this Californian rank Upstate #1?
- Outstanding clinical training
- Excellent teaching faculty
- Opportunities to participate in research activities
- Dedicated and supportive Program Director and Chair of Medicine
- Fantastic fellowship/job placement
- Diverse training opportunities in geographic proximity to one another
- A metropolitan area with advantages of big-city/small-town living
Did he make the right choice? He certainly thought so as he subsequently stayed on for Chief Residency and then was fortunate enough to complete a Nephrology Fellowship at Upstate. But he ultimately returned to the West Coast, right? Nope. He joined as faculty and Associate Program Director in 2003 and has been serving as Residency Program Director since 2008.
I share this story because it highlights, in my opinion, the profound effect the educational experience at Upstate can have on ones life. It certainly did mine.
I truly believe the program is better now than when I trained. We have a growing Academic Hospitalist program with outstanding subspecialty support in all areas of Internal Medicine, including Dermatology. We have bi-weekly Morning Report sessions with the Department of Emergency Medicine so that presented cases can be discussed from two viewpoints. We have simulation procedure and code training as well as a standardized patient program that fosters development in professionalism and interpersonal skills. The list goes on and on, but perhaps most important to you is our Board success rate which now stands at 99% over the last 10 years.india nz india next match india news latest india national language india national cricket team india nxivm india oxenberg india oven india on map india olympics india on world map india oci india official language india olympics 2021 india population india palace india population 2021 india post india pakistan india post tracking india pale ale india passport renewal in usa india quality india quarantine rules india quarantine rules from usa india quad india quality menu india queen india quiz india quarantine requirements india royale india royale age india restaurant india religion india royale kids india royale cosmetics india rupee to usd india royale twitter india sweets and spices india sweets and spices movie india stock market india standard time india states india shawn india spice house india score india time india time now india t20 india travel ban india time zone india to usa travel india travel restrictions india t20 world cup india us travel ban india us india us travel india urban dictionary india unemployment rate india us visa appointment india us flights india uk india vs new zealand india vs england india vaccination rate india vs pakistan india vs nz india visa india vs new zealand t20 2021 india vaccine india walton india world cup india westbrooks india weather india world map india world cup t20 india walton husband india women india x visa india yuridia india yahoo india youtube india yellow india yuridia tour 2021 india yaffe india yuridia carne asada india young india zip code india zodiac sign india zip code list india zindabad india zodiac india zip code number india zoo india zero covid india about afghanistan india about afghanistan situation india about in english india about in hindi india about india india about cryptocurrency india about pakistan india about 10 lines india after gandhi india after independence india after gandhi pdf india after gandhi audiobook india after ww2 india after the guptas india after imperialism india after colonialism india against corruption india against china india against england india against stupidity india against england test match india against pakistan india against propaganda tweets india against presstitutes india among us discord india among top 10 countries india among world india around country india around sea india around the world india around around india in 80 trains around india clive is misconstrued as polish around india in 80 trains pdf around india with a movie camera india as i knew it india as a name india as an emerging market india as a country india as a superpower india as a colony india as bharat book india as a continent india bottom of island at the bottom of india india top of india at paralympics india at olympics india at paralympics 2021 india at olympics 2021 india at times square india at night india at t20 world cup india at olympics 2020 india before british india before partition india before colonization india before 1947 india before durk india before and after covid india before mughals india before british rule map india behind afghan war india behind new zealand india behind bangladesh india behind kabul attack india behind threat india behind new zealand tour cancellation india behind new zealand withdrawal india behind lahore attack british india beneath the satellites island beneath india india beside countries
