SUNY Downstate Medical Center

The State University of New York Health Science Center at Brooklyn, better known as SUNY Downstate Medical Center, is a public university and medical center located in central Brooklyn, New York and the only academic center for health education, research, and patient care serving Brooklyn’s 2.5 million residents

Its large urban campus includes the College of Medicine, College of Nursing, College of Health Related Professions, School of Graduate Studies, Graduate Program in Public Health, and University Hospital of Brooklyn, as well as a student center and residences.

In addition to affiliations with Kings County Hospital Center and 22 other hospitals throughout Brooklyn, where much of the core clinical teaching takes place, Downstate has numerous partnerships, including a joint PhD Program in Biomedical Engineering with Polytechnic University (now Polytechnical Institute of NYU); science enrichment programs for local youth in tandem with the Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health, housed on the Downstate campus; and the Brooklyn Health Disparities Center, in collaboration with the Ashe Institute and the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President.

With 7,117 jobs, it is the borough’s fourth largest employer. Many of its employees and half of Downstate’s 1,613 students are minorities or recent immigrants. The College of Medicine, one of the largest medical schools in New York, has the highest percentage of minority students of any medical school in the state. More physicians practicing in New York City received their training there than at any other medical school. Downstate also ranks eighth nationally for the number of graduates who are on the faculty at academic medical centers across the country.

The Colleges of Nursing and Health Related Professions also play a unique role in the life of the borough and city. The College of Nursing is the only nursing school in New York to offer graduate programs in all major tracks: nurse practitioner, clinical nurse specialist, nurse midwifery, and nurse anesthesia. Approximately three-fourths of its students are minorities.

The College of Health Related Professions is the gateway for students seeking to enter some of the most competitive and highly paid careers in healthcare today: physician assistant, physical and occupational therapy, medical informatics, diagnostic medical imaging, and midwifery. The college is particularly proud of its historic claim to having the oldest midwifery program in the nation.

The School of Graduate Studies is known for its excellence in basic science education and research. Students have the opportunity to work side by side with many of the top neuroscientists and basic researchers in the country, such as Robert F. Furchgott, whose Nobel Prize-winning discovery of the role of nitric oxide in the body was made in close collaboration with his students.

Through both its research and educational enterprise, SUNY Downstate has succeeded in nurturing biotechnological development in Brooklyn. The cornerstone of this initiative is Downstate’s Advanced Biotechnology Incubator and Biotechnology Park, the only one of its kind in Brooklyn. In addition to providing the facilities for small start-up companies to develop new biomedical products, job-training programs are in place to provide the educated work force needed to meet the demands of this growing industry.

The current president is John C. LaRosa, MD.
