SUNY Upstate Medical University Graduate Reviews
I was in the Physician Assistant program at this university, but we also attended some of the Medical School classes. The teachers in my program were great. They were good instructors who genuinely cared about their students and were always willing to work with you to help you do well. I felt I received a quality education here and our program has maintained high PANCE pass rates. The facilities are also good, there’s a lot to do in Syracuse in any down time you have, and you can’t beat the price for a PA program.
From the start of your first year you get exposure to relevant clinical experiences and patients. The curriculum is system based meaning you are taught everything about one system - musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, etc. rather than broad topics covering all systems at once. There is countless opportunities to get involved on campus and in the Syracuse community. Faculty makes time to meet and work with you and are willing to answer any questions you may have about the material. There’s a lot of additional help resources available to ensure one is successful.
It's been great thus far! I can't complain about anything I'd like to see changed just yet. More of my complaints have to do with the environment of Syracuse in general and not the school. The neighborhood needs a huge upgrade in terms of fun things and places to go. Being from a big city, it feels a little empty here.
