Why Albany Med?

The reasons are as diverse and wide-ranging as our body of residents/fellows.  Each has a particular reason for choosing this exceptional institution and below are a selection of testimonials from some of our residents/fellows and recent alumni.

Mona Amin, D.O.

I was drawn to this program for many reasons. Primarily, the residents I met during my interview day were warm, welcoming, and seemed genuinely excited about the program. It was a huge draw to see potential coworkers in a great mood amidst their busy day. I also loved the breadth of sub-specialties available. I knew that training at AMC would mean exposure to a variety of patients and pathology--and it definitely has been.

Heather Matott, M.D.

I attended medical school at Albany Medical Center.  When it came time to look for a residency position I set out on a mission to find a program that was better than Albany Med- and I could not.  Albany had the right mix of caring faculty, friendly and hardworking residents, and a diverse patient population that would ensure a great education in pediatrics.  Now three years later, I know that I made the right decision.  I have complete confidence in my ability to practice independently upon graduation.

Sandhyaa Iyengar, M.D.

I felt immediately that AMC was the place that would shape me, challenge me, and encourage me to be the best physician I could be.  I saw that the quality of teaching and academic exposure was excellent and that I would be supported by a warm extended family of residents, attendings and staff.  I had an immediate sense of acceptance which has been invaluable during this process of growth.
