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.


This site hosts approximately 40 percent of our resident training in medicine.

You may rotate on any of three faculty-supervised general medicine services where you will work with interns and third-and fourth-year medical students. BGMC also hosts an MICU service supervised by critical care faculty and a CCU service supervised by cardiology faculty, each staffed by multiple residents and interns as well as a fellow.

You may do your medicine emergency room rotation here, as well. Specialty rotations with specialty faculty and a fellow may be taken as electives.

Monthly mock codes, facilitated by critical care faculty, occur at this site.
