Alexandar DaoudAlexander Daoud, MD Class of 2020

Training at Stony Brook has been a highlight of my career. From the opportunity to learn from world-renowned faculty to the graduated autonomy you gain during your course of residency, Stony Brook provides a truly ideal training ground for those aiming to become complete dermatologists. The training I received in every facet of our field - from pediatrics and complex medical dermatology to surgery and cosmetics - have carried forward into both fellowship and clinical practice. I cannot give our program enough accolades, so I will conclude with this: Stony Brook made me the dermatologist I am today, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

The dermatology residency program at Stony Brook offers outstanding training. There are numerous strengths to the program including the breadth of clinical, surgical, and cosmetic experiences, a welcoming environment, and dedication of staff. What stands out the most was the approachability of faculty members and comradery among the residents. I am fortunate to have exceptional lifelong colleagues from my time here.

Stony Brook is an excellent dermatology program that will prepare residents to pursue any track in dermatology. We receive amazing training in all aspects of dermatology, from general dermatology to pediatric and cosmetic dermatology. Our dermatopathology and surgical training are second to none, and have prepared me well to pursue a fellowship in dermatopathology. The best part of this program are the people: our faculty, support staff, and residents are incredibly warm, friendly, and supportive. I am glad to have trained at Stony Brook Dermatology and feel confident in my ability to manage any dermatologic condition.

I met friends and mentors at Stony Brook that I will have for life. I really enjoyed the various clinical settings to train in, including two hospitals and two main clinic settings, as well additional satellite clinics and expert training by a world-class dermoscopist.
