SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University

Permanent URI for this community

SUNY Downstate is the only academic medical center in Brooklyn. For the 2.3 million people who live here, it means ready access to some of the best physicians—and physicians-to-be—in the world.

In 1860, the College of Medicine that became Downstate was the world's first to bring medical students to patient bedsides. Today, we're changing education by not just emphasizing patient care, but student support, as well. The rigorous standard of our training remains the same. But we're doing more than ever to ensure your voice is heard through our student-first philosophy.
