About

History

Formally known as The State University of New York Health Science Center at Brooklyn, but better known to our patients and Brooklyn neighbors as SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University, we are older than the Brooklyn Bridge. We trace our roots back to 1860, when a school of medicine was founded at the Long Island College Hospital.

Education

Our School of Health Professions and College of Nursing also play a unique role in the borough and the city. We have the oldest midwifery program in the country, and we recently made history again by establishing a joint program between the two colleges that trains midwives who are not nurses. The College of Nursing is particularly proud of its role in educating minority students. Approximately three-fourths of the students are minority-group members, and many are recent immigrants.

Research

The Office of Research Administration (ORA) provides oversight and support for all elements of Downstate's research infrastructure including the Pre-Award and Post-Award Divisions, the Institutional Review Board (IRB), the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), the Office of Animal Welfare, the Office of Technology Commercialization, the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC), Clinical Trials, and the Division of Comparative Medicine.We provide all research-related academic and administrative support functions for the SUNY Downstate community through the Research Foundation for SUNY. We work closely with sponsors.
