Medical Education

Renaissance School of Medicine trains more than 500 medical students and over 750 medical residents and fellows each year. 

The School consists of eight basic science and 17 clinical departments. Its responsibilities include the preclinical and clinical education of students in the five schools of the Health Sciences – the School of Medicine, the School of Dental Medicine, the School of Nursing, the School of Social Welfare and the School of Health Technology and Management – as well as the Program in Public Health/MPH, plus the instruction of students across other schools in the University. The School provides graduate, post-graduate and continuing education degrees.

Renaissance sponsors 68 ACGME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education) residencies and fellowships in a broad range of specialties, along with three AOA (American Osteopathic Association) programs.

The School’s Office of Global Medical Education facilitates clinical outreach, global health research, clinical electives and exchange programs with more than 20 partners around the globe. Each year, more than 50 medical students participate in global medicine programs in Latin America, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Residents from the Departments of Medicine, OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Anesthesiology and Emergency Medicine pursue rotations at various partner sites, including Chile, China, Ecuador, Japan, Madagascar, Peru, Rwanda and Uganda.

Residents and fellows train in various specialties at five main care sites: Stony Brook University Hospital, Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, Northport Veterans Administration Medical Center and Nassau University Medical Center.
