Hi! Welcome to Voices of Siena/AMC! This student-run blog tells the story of current students and alumni of the Siena-AMC community. In creating this blog, we hope to illustrate what life is like as a part of the Siena-Albany Medical College program.
Founded by Dr. Alan Miller and Dr. Ed LaRow more than 25 years ago, the Siena College / Albany Medical College B.A./M.D. Science, Humanities, and Medicine program is an 8-year medical program jointly sponsored by Siena College (Loudonville, New York) and Albany Medical College (Albany, New York). The program’s unique emphasis on social service, ethics, and humanities recruits students who are passionate in community outreach and service on local, national, and international levels. Here, we focus on training future physicians who “treat the patient, not the disease.” Students spend four years of undergraduate education at Siena College where they receive a Bachelor of Arts in Biology along with a humanities based minor. They then matriculate to Albany Medical College where they receive an M.D. Through the years, alumni of the program have gone on to provide medical service to both domestic and international communities in need.
