This 500-bed acute care center, located on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, is one of the region’s major hospitals.

Much of the patient base comes from the local urban area. The hospital also serves as a tertiary referral center, with a significant patient population drawn from Western New York’s eight counties.

Patients present with the entire range of disease states in internal medicine, general surgery and cardiothoracic surgery, with many critically ill cases.


Our BGMC training site gives you experience with the pulmonary consultation service and the medical intensive care unit.

Using the ultrasound technology available at our BGMC site, you will receive training on ultrasound-guided thoracentesis for intensive care patients as well as inpatients and outpatients.

You will also have the opportunity to participate in cardiopulmonary exercise testing.
