About Us

We are the largest clinical department in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, with more than 140 full-time faculty.

Interim department chair Brian M. Murray, MD


We teach in all four years of the medical school curriculum and provide excellent residency and fellowship training programs. We maintain active programs in both local and national postgraduate continuing medical education.


Our research funding has increased by more than 85 percent in the last six years and totals more than $13 million. Our faculty collaborate with colleagues across the clinical and basic science disciplines, and our labs host numerous postdocs and graduate researchers.

Patient Care

Our medical students, residents and fellows get experience with a highly diverse patient population in a range of clinical settings through rotations in our affiliated hospitals and freestanding ambulatory sites. These include the world-renowned Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, community-based facilities, including a Veterans Affairs hospital, and smaller specialty clinics. Patients from throughout the seven-county Western New York area seek our services because of our reputation for excellence.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

In our department, diversity and inclusion are centered around building intentional, meaningful and sustainable bridges across differing backgrounds, communities and schools of thought.
