This blog is a 100% student-run collection of written reflections by 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-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 is unique in its heavy emphasis on social service, ethics, and humanities in the medical education. Students are driven to engage in a significant amount of community outreach and service on both local and international levels. The program focuses on training future physicians that “treat the patient, not the disease.” Students spend their four years of undergraduate education at Siena College and earn a Bachelor of Arts in Science before receiving their medical degree from Albany Medical College. Through the years, alumni of the program have gone on to provide medical service to both domestic and international communities in need.
