A Medical School for the 21st Century


Our school’s design fosters collaboration among students, researchers and clinicians. A built-in Metro station makes public access to medical facilities convenient year-round.


We’re expanding to supply the experts required to meet growing medical needs regionally and beyond, in specialties such as cardiology and endocrinology.

We’re building a center of expertise that will make Western New York a national leader in health care, medical research and mentored research training.


Our cutting-edge facilities and specialty programs will help meet the region’s need for top-notch physicians.


Our growing roster of world-class physician-scientists explores disease mechanisms and new therapies, contributing richly to the quest for cures and improved treatments.


At our dedicated translational research center, we unite experts from hospital MDs to world-class scientists--and show the world what’s possible in medical advancement.
