MD Program

Educating the next generation of doctors since 1839.


As one of the nation's oldest private medical schools, we take pride in offering an intimate, collegial environment that fosters humane values and genuine learning. Since its founding in 1839, Albany Medical College's MD program has maintained a small class size of approximately 145 diverse and multi-talented students in our first-year class.
