Residencies and Fellowships - Talented Faculty Leaders

Albany Med’s 400 full-time faculty physicians, nurses and staff are skilled in over 35 medical specialties -- the largest collection in the region. Such diverse clinical offerings differentiate us as an academic medical center and enable us to recruit top physician talent who are attracted to the breath and depth of pathologies at Albany Med.

Recent aggressive recruitment efforts have resulted in Department Chairs who are renowned as leaders in their field.  Most notably:
