Existing as part of the SUNY Upstate Medical University, the Upstate Emergency Medicine Residency Program was established in 1991 as a three year training program. The first graduating class of six residents completed their training in 1995. Alumni have spread throughout the United States and have found jobs in a variety of clinical settings including fellowship positions.

Now graduating eleven residents per year, the Upstate EM program has enjoyed the honor of maintaining accreditation by the Residency Review Committee (RRC) since its inception.
