    The didactic education, both daily morning and noon conferences, was amazing and solidified my knowledge base. There is a wide range of clinical pathologies we are exposed to on the medicine floors and intensive care unit.”

    My favorite thing about Albany Medical College was the faculty’s commitment to training the fellows. There is ample room for the fellows to learn on their own and train themselves. This balance of faculty’s training with autonomy and self-directed learning is unique.”

    I attribute a lot of my growth and development to the wonderful teachers at Albany Medical College. As fellows, we got excellent hands-on training and had a lot of independence managing multiple critically sick patients.”
