State University of New York Downstate Medical Center College of Medicine Mission:

The College of Medicine’s primary mission is to make high-quality education available to New York State’s next generation of health professionals. On a broader level, our work has the potential to influence the future of the medical profession and the network of social institutions that support the provision of health care. To do this, we must educate our students, preparing them to be competent and caring physicians in the scientific and social context in which they will work. Through basic and clinical research, we must advance the understanding of basic mechanisms underlying health and disease and develop new strategies for the prevention and treatment of illness. Lastly, we have the opportunity to serve as leaders of the health-related network in our community in order to foster quality health care for the residents of Brooklyn and neighboring boroughs.
