SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse is now known as the State University of New York Upstate Medical University. Commonly referred to as SUNY Upstate, the university's origins lie in the Geneva Medical College that was founded in 1834. The Syracuse University took over the assets of this institute in 1871 and established a separate medical college. In 1950, this was taken over by SUNY and named SUNY Upstate Medical Center. It was christened SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse in 1986, and received its present name in 1999. The 30-acre campus is located in Syracuse, New York.
