About This Program
The SUNY Upstate Medical University Neurology Department and its Residency Training Program has experienced dramatic growth over the past decade. During that time we became a Hub Hospital for Stroke Care, opened a busy Neuro-Intensive Care Unit and moved into a beautiful new, dedicated neuroscience wing at University Hospital. Perhaps our greatest strength is our rich and diverse patient population. Drawing from 17 counties that stretch from Pennsylvania to Canada, we are the tertiary care center for much of upstate New York. Another major strength of our program is its warm, friendly, and supportive atmosphere. Residents have commented that, although we are a busy program, the stress of this is greatly mitigated by strong bonds between residents and between faculty and residents. We also have a comprehensive didactic program. Clinical and basic science content, along with pathology and neuroradiology, relevant clinical neurophysiology are taught in month-long units at daily noon conferences. Our graduates obtain excellent fellowships in the sub-specialty of their choice. In summary, SUNY Upstate Neurology offers you a collegial atmosphere, replete with fascinating cases of all types, an excellent curriculum and a very bright future in Neurology.
