Life According to Sue
A guide to graduate student life at AECOM.
Compiled by GSC. 9th edition, 2003.
Welcome to the Sue Golding Graduate Division of Medical Sciences of Albert Einstein College of Medicine (AECOM). Here you will spend the next 4 or 5 (or 6 or 7 or 8) years, as a Ph.D. or a MD/Ph.D. candidate. This handbook was modeled after the World According to Albert (for Medical Students), but it has been modified specifically for graduate students. We hope it is helpful to you. Good luck with your graduate career!

The Life According to Sue (Golding) was first published by graduate students for the benefit of the incoming class of 1995. It was based upon The World According to Albert, a guide done by the medical students - the need for more specific grad-school information was felt, and so here we are. This is the ninth edition, and it is fairly complete and fairly accurate as of August, 2003. However, it can easily be made more complete and more accurate. Now that we have a core text, we hope to expand and update the guide on an annual basis. Your comments and assistance will be welcome. Contact the current GSC Co-chairs if you have something to contribute. The various sections were written by different students, and compiled and edited by others. Somewhere in the process, the rather lengthy list of who-did-what got lost. The absence of a list of names, however, does not diminish our gratitude to all who helped. Thanks to all of the students who contributed valuable time and energy updating this handbook for SGGD students.
Online version of the 9th edition of Life... , with minor editions, was developed by Santosh Patnaik, MD, PhD (SGGD'04).
