Albany Medical College


Recommended Posts

Founded in 1839, Albany Medical College embodies the tradition and prestige that comes with being one of the oldest private medical schools in the country. However, our approach to teaching tomorrow's doctors, scientists, and healthcare professionals are among the most innovative. Through the curriculum, the College imparts knowledge to students in the graduate and post-graduate fields of medicine and provides a collegial, nurturing environment that fosters intellectual discovery.
As traditional methods of learning, discovery and healthcare delivery grow increasingly complex, Albany Medical College keeps pace and breaks new ground. Among our most significant accomplishments is the recruitment of clinical and research faculty of national renown, the application of new information technology to further online and virtual learning, and the expansion of our academic facility to better meet the needs of our students.
Our medical and graduate studies students work together in research projects that are both basic science and clinical. Our Master's programs rank among the highest across the nation. Our new Master's in Bioethics taps into faculty throughout the Capital Region to address clinical and research issues. We hold our graduates of all our programs in high esteem as they pursue life goals of excellence in healthcare – patient care, leadership, and service – and biomedical research.
Albany Medical College's commitment to providing the highest quality of medical education, research, and care will continue with the same intensity. We invite you to be a part of this commitment to excellence.

Albany Medical College's Patient Safety and Clinical Competency Center (PSCCC) houses an incredible collection of simulation and clinical training resources to educate students and other healthcare workers.

Using very lifelike mannequins and other cutting-edge training tools and role-playing with trained actors to simulate patient exams and consultations, students can practice hands-on medicine in a safe and realistic medical setting before treating patients. The PSCCC allows students to develop excellent diagnostic and clinical skills and patient care practices, all with supervision and mentoring from our outstanding faculty.
