Syracuse, N.Y. — Dr. Mantosh Dewan, a psychiatrist who has worked at Upstate Medical University for 41 years, has been named president of the academic medical center.
He was named interim president in 2018 when Dr. Danielle Laraque-Arena, Upstate’s former president, resigned.
Dewan’s annual salary as president will be $610,000. He will also get a $5,000 a month housing allowance.
Dewan is a SUNY distinguished service professor and former chair of the Upstate’s psychiatry department. He has also served as interim dean of Upstate’s medical school.
An Upstate Medical search subcommittee said in a resolution that Dewan “has demonstrated an extraordinary capability to lead this institution in a positive future direction and has gained the measure of respect and support of all sector of Upstate Medical University.”
