As one of only 140 academic medical centers in the United States, [10] the Upstate University Health System serves over 1.8 million people, often the most seriously ill and injured, and includes Upstate University Hospital; the region's only Level 1 trauma and burn center, [11] Upstate Community Hospital, Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital, Upstate Brain & Spine Center, Upstate Heart and Vascular Center, Upstate Cancer Center and numerous satellite sites covering Central New York. [12]

Upstate directly generates 10,959 jobs, [13] making it Central New York's largest employer. [14] The university is an important part of the economy of New York state as it adds more than $2.5 billion to the economy of New York annually. Nearly 7,900 SUNY Upstate alumni physicians are licensed throughout the United States and they generate more than $24.8 billion in economic activity and support or employ nearly 132,354 employees throughout the United States. [15]

History

Geneva Medical College (1834-1871)

The present Upstate Medical University College of Medicine traces its ancestry to Geneva Medical College founded in September 15, 1834 as part of Geneva College, today known as Hobart and William Smith Colleges. The medical school, located in Geneva, New York, was the brainchild of Edward Cutbush, MD, who became its first dean. GMC held its first classes in February 1835, and became the first college to grant a full M.D. to a woman, Elizabeth Blackwell, in 1849. [1]

Among the early luminaries at GMC were Prof. of Surgery Frank Hastings Hamilton, pioneer in orthopedics, military surgery, and military hygiene; Stephen Smith, briefly a GMC student in 1847-1848, later an innovative sanitarian and surgeon in New York City; Lecturer in the Theory and Practice of Medicine Austin Flint, developer of modern methods of auscultation, cofounder (with Hamilton and several other GMC faculty) of the University of Buffalo College of Medicine, and eventually President of the American Medical Association (AMA); and Prof. of Anatomy and Physiology Willard Parker, who became the premier surgeon at Bellevue. [1]

Syracuse University College of Medicine (1871-1950)

In 1871 Hobart disbanded GMC and sold its library, anatomical specimens, and other tangible assets to Dean John Towler. Acting as a private citizen, Towler donated these materials to the new Syracuse University on condition that the trustees immediately establish an AMA-approved medical school. Thus the Syracuse University College of Medicine came into being on December 4, 1871, with Frederick Hyde as dean. [1]

In the latter part of the century, the SU College of Medicine was among the first to institute a graded medical instruction program, with definite pre-clinical and clinical years and organize its curriculum according to the so-called "German model," with intense scientific and especially laboratory training for students in the first two years, and rigorous clinical training on rounds thereafter. [1] This tradition of steadily improving educational methods, practices, and facilities placed the SU College of Medicine in a good light for the Carnegie Foundation's Flexner Report in 1910. The Flexner Report hastened the demise of many medical schools in the United States and Canada, but, as Abraham Flexner wrote, "Of the eleven medical schools now existing in the state, only the bona-fide university departments can then expect to survive: outside of New York city, Syracuse University alone has just now a chance." [16]

Acquisition by The State University of New York (1950 - Present)

In 1950, State University of New York (SUNY) moved to add a medical center in Syracuse and ultimately acquired the College of Medicine from Syracuse University as a part of Governor Thomas E. Dewey's vision for Upstate New York. [16] After carrying the names "SUNY Upstate Medical Center" (initially) and "SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse" (1986), the institution was renamed to become SUNY Upstate Medical University in 1999.

The first decade of the 21st century has been one of growth: the opening of the Institute for Human Performance for basic and clinical research; the East Tower expansion of University Hospital that houses the Golisano Children's Hospital and other clinical specialties; the Upstate cancer center; the Nappi Longevity Institute; a renovated gross anatomy lab; the Setnor Academic Building with a unique clinical skills center; and the purchase of land for a new Biotechnology Research Center; Geneva Tower including expansion of facilities past Interstate 81. [1] A plaque in the lobby of Weiskotten Hall, named for Herman Gates Weiskotten, [17] aptly describes one of the institution's driving philosophies: "Dedicated to all those of scientific mind and investigative spirit who purpose to serve humanity."

Campus

The university's main campus is located in the University Hill neighborhood of Syracuse, New York flanking Interstate 81. It includes Upstate University Hospital, the Institute for Human Performance, Setnor Academic Building, Central New York Gamma Knife Center, Jacobsen Hall, Regional Oncology Center, Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital, Weiskotten Hall, the Health Sciences Library, Silverman Hall and Geneva Tower residence hall. A clinical campus in Binghamton, New York was established in 1976. Medical students spend their first two years of medical school in Syracuse, New York and then approximately a quarter of the class completes their training in Binghamton. Although the Clinical Campus is community-based, Binghamton students spend similar amounts of time in hospitals on their rotations. [18]

Medical students on the Syracuse campus complete their clinical years at Upstate's own University Hospital and its affiliates. Students on the Syracuse campus learn alongside doctors using the most advanced technology and techniques: [19]

Upstate University Health System

Upstate University Hospital is a 752-bed non-profit, teaching hospital located in Syracuse, New York. [20] Upstate University Hospital is a part of the Upstate Health System, as the flagship hospital in the system. As the hospital is a teaching hospital, it is affiliated with the Upstate Medical University. [21] The hospital is also an American College of Surgeons verified Level 1 Trauma Center, the only in the region and one of 21 in New York. [22] Additionally, the hospital has a rooftop helipad to handle the emergent transport of critical patients to and from the hospital. [23] Attached to the hospital is the Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital that treats infants, children, teens, and young adults aged 0–21. [24]

In addition to being the region's only Level-I Trauma Center, Upstate includes: [25]

University Hospital's New York State Designated Centers include:

There are seven clinical departments that offer surgery at Upstate University Hospital. Collectively, the hospital offers more surgeons, robotic instrumentation and specialty procedures than any other facility in Central New York, with the Department of Surgery providing the largest component. In addition, the past decade has seen the expansion of cancer surgical specialties at Upstate. The surgeons who treat cancer see patients through the Upstate Cancer Center, a newer facility which provides disease-specific, multidisciplinary care to patients with different types of cancer. [26]

Upstate is an upper-division transfer and doctoral university classified as a Special Focus Four-Year: Medical Schools and Centers, 1 of only 54 in the nation, specializing solely in health care careers. [30] This means students applying to the bachelors programs take the prerequisite courses (minimum 60 semester hours) at another college and then complete their junior and senior years of the bachelors degree at Upstate for their program of study. Students in the graduate and post-graduate programs enter having completed a bachelors and/or a masters degree prior to enrollment. [31]

In total, there are 1,592 students out of which 160 matriculate into the MD program, over 130 are admitted to the College of Health Professions and 400+ matriculate at the College of Nursing respectively.

College of Medicine

The College of Medicine (COM) is the 2nd and 15th oldest medical school in New York state and the United States respectively. More physicians practicing in Central New York received their training here than at any other medical school. The COM offers professional and graduate degrees including the Master of Public Health (MPH) and Doctor of Medicine (MD). In addition, in conjunction with the College of Graduate Studies, the COM grants joint degrees including the MD/PhD and MD/MPH.

The College of Medicine is the highest-funded school within the University, as a result graduates continue to do exceptionally well in obtaining high quality residencies and match into residencies at a higher rate than the national average. [32] [33] Students in the College of Medicine have access to state of the art research facilities, classrooms, laboratories and clinical facilities, including the Clinical Skills Teaching Center, Surgical Simulation, Research and Training Center, Gross Anatomy lab and etc. [34]

All College of Medicine students spend their first two years at the Upstate Medical University campus in Syracuse. At the start of the third year, one-fourth of the class moves to the Binghamton Clinical Campus, one hour south of Syracuse for their third year, and most elect to stay for their fourth. The rest of the class remains in Syracuse. [35]

As an academic medical center, most of the physicians and surgeons providing services at Upstate University Hospital also are faculty at Upstate’s College of Medicine, demonstrating an ongoing commitment to education and training. Several departments — General Surgery, Ophthalmology, Urology, Orthopedics and Neurosurgery, in particular — have considerable faculty and external funding dedicated to their research mission. Surgeons also partner with external institutions, such as nearby Syracuse and Cornell Universities for tissue engineering and brain tumor research. [26]

PhD students are given a full year before making the crucial decision as to the topic and mentor for their thesis research. During the first year, candidates rotate through three labs, choosing from a variety of well funded labs in leading-edge research areas. To help select rotations, faculty members from each department program take an afternoon early in the semester to present the research carried on in the program. After successful completion of lab rotations and a first-year core curriculum taught by faculty from throughout the college, students select their dissertation mentor and transition into the appropriate degree-granting program. [43]

Ph.D. students receive a competitive 12-month stipend of $27,121 and a full-tuition scholarship. By receiving stipends, Ph.D. students become part of the SUNY Graduate Student Employees Union, which provides periodic and automatic increases in stipend awards in addition to other benefits, including a low-cost health care package. [44]

College of Nursing

To meet the shortage of nurses, the State University of New York Upstate Medical University initiated an Associate's Degree Program in 1959. More than 500 registered nurses were graduated from the program between 1959 and 1976. In 1974, as a response to the need for primary care nurses, a Nurse Practitioner Certificate Program was implemented. This program was supported primarily by federal grant monies. Over 300 Nurse Practitioners were graduated; many of them remained at Upstate Medical University upon graduation. [45]

As enrollment grew, the College of Nursing was initially established in 1986, with Dr. M. Janice Nelson appointed as the first dean. [45] Soon after, it began offering bachelor's and master's degrees and currently has the following advanced education programs for RNs: Bachelor of Science, Master of Science (PNP, FNP and FPMHNP tracks), Post Masters Advanced Certificate (PNP, FNP, FPMHNP tracks) and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). [46]

There are over 400+ students enrolled at the College of Nursing and the college boasts an impressive nearly 100 percent job placement rate after graduation for those seeking work. [46]

College of Health Professions

The College of Health Professions was formed in 1971. However, programs in the Health Professions have been in existence on this campus since 1956. Students can choose from nine health care fields: Behavior Analysis Studies (MS), Cardiovascular Perfusion (MS), Medical Biotechnology (BS and MS), Medical Imaging Sciences (BS) , Physical Therapy (DPT), Physician Assistant (MS), Radiation Therapy (BS) and Respiratory Therapy (BS).

The College of Health Professions annually admits over 130 students into its programs. Retention rates average approximately 90 percent for the College. There are 32 full-time and 8 part-time faculty. In addition, there are more than 240 clinical and adjunct faculty who contribute to the college's educational programs. [47]

Research

As a biomedical research enterprise, Upstate focuses on the most prevalent human diseases, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, nervous system disorders, vision, and infectious diseases. The quest for treatments and cures is built upon expertise in structural, molecular and systems biology. Grants are concentrated in five basic science departments; Upstate’s clinical departments host more than 450 active clinical trials. Upstate's research expenditures of more than $35 million ripple through the state economy and generated an additional $20.7 million in indirect and induced activity. [13]

Institute for Human Performance Upstate-Medical-Univ-Human-Perf-2018-06.jpg
Institute for Human Performance

Upstate Medical University completed the construction of the Upstate Cancer Center, a five-story $74-million facility, in July 2014 and expanded it in 2018 to meet patient's demands and further research capability. [48] [49] In addition, the Nappi Longevity Institute at Upstate Medical University—a five floor, nearly 200,000 square foot health and wellness complex—will be completed in 2023. To fund the $154 million project, Upstate received a $70.6 million grant as part of the Capital Restructuring Financing Program and Essential Health Care Provider Support Program, and an additional $70.6 million in matching bonds from New York state. [50] Upstate is currently designated as a Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s disease by New York State. [51]

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo congratulated Upstate Medical on its No.1 ranking COVID-19 saliva test by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for detecting the virus in its earliest stages. The test developed by Upstate Medical and NY Start-Up Quadrant Biosciences, called Clarifi COVID-19, was also cited by the FDA as being among the most sensitive tests. [52]

In March 12, 2021, Upstate announced the grand opening of the Upstate Medical Vector Biocontainment Lab established to research infectious diseases that pose major public health risks. The new $7.6 million 2,500-square-foot laboratory was funded by New York State investment and will house clinical experts from State University of New York institutions who will collaborate on cutting-edge research of Coronavirus, Lyme, West Nile, Zika, Dengue, and other infectious diseases. The VBL also features a Human Challenge Room, where a human test subject may receive a mosquito bite, allowing for natural disease transmission and a potentially more accurate understanding of the disease and how to treat it. [53] [54]

“You would find this only at the CDC or in an Army laboratory,” Thangamani, MD said of the Human Challenge Room. “It’s rare to find this in an academic setting." [54]

Cross-Functional Collaboration

In 2013, Upstate Medical University, in partnership with SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF), Syracuse University, Cornell University, the University of Rochester and SUNY Buffalo received a $2 million federal grant to acquire an 800 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectrometer. The acquisition of the spectrometer filled a void in the region's research landscape as this instrument will be the only one of its kind in Central and Western New York. "It speaks volumes about the power of a system when this grant was led by SUNY Upstate, the equipment will be housed at ESF, and its use will be open to scientists from across Central and Western New York," said SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher. [55] In addition, Upstate and ESF were recently awarded $15 million through a competitive grant program to create the SUNY Institute of Environmental Health & Environmental Medicine. [56]

In addition, a joint Master of Public Health degree program and a joint PhD program in biomedical engineering are offered by SUNY Upstate and Syracuse University. [57] The campuses of the two universities are adjacent to each other on University Hill in Syracuse. In 2021, a research collaboration between Upstate Medical University and Syracuse University on detecting Alzheimer’s disease won the IAAI-21 Deployed Application Award on Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence. In their paper the team states, "Our research is the first to develop an effective machine learning approach that can identify the latent patterns due to preclinical AD from MRI brain scans, which can significantly improve AD patients’ intervention and treatment.” [58]

Selectivity

In 2021, the MD program received over 5,490 applications for 160 seats, an increase of over 26% from the previous year to what some described as the "Fauci Effect". [59] [60] [61] In 2020, the incoming class had an average GPA of 3.77 and MCAT score of 513, which is 90th percentile nationally. [62] [63] Over 52.6% of applicants were "Out of State" with respect to state residency and the remaining 47.4% were NYS residents. [59]

The College of Medicine has a 97% pass rate on the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1. [64] In addition, Upstate had a match rate of 97% vs. 92.8% nationally for US MD schools in 2021 for first-year residency positions. [65] [66]

The Emory University School of Medicine is the graduate medical school of Emory University and a component of Emory’s Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center. Before it was established as the Emory School of Medicine in 1915, the school first began as the Atlanta Medical College. Founded in 1854 by a group of physicians led by Dr. John G. Westmoreland, the college began during unfavorable financial conditions along with competition of three other medical schools opening in the state, driving up competition for students. Despite these challenges, the Atlanta Medical College continued operation until August 1861 when classes were suspended due to the Civil War. Several years later, the College merged with the Southern Medical College, leading to the creation of the Atlanta College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1898. The College existed for 14 years before another merger took place, this time due to encouragement from the Council of Medical Education. The Council promised that if the Atlanta College of Physicians and Surgeons merged with the Atlanta School of Medicine, they would receive a Class A rating. After the merger, the American Medical Association began pressuring medical schools to align with universities in order to improve the quality of medical education nationwide. Just two years after the formation of the second version of the Atlanta Medical College, the College combined with Emory University, which was in its initial stages of development and sought to add medical education to its offerings. On June 28, 1915 the Emory School of Medicine was established.
