Program Director’s Message

We welcome you to the Stony Brook Family Medicine Residency Program at Southampton and are glad that you are interested in learning more about us.  The mission of our program is to create medical leaders with a commitment to life-long learning, and the ideals of Social Medicine. We employ the principles of evidence-based medicine and translate this into providing excellent medical care to our patients. To that end, we offer training in Integrative Medicine, Medical Acupuncture, Biopsychosocial Medicine, Hospice and Palliative Medicine, and Addiction Medicine. We emphasize the role of the physician as leader and put a premium on taking a comprehensive approach to the care of our patients in the office and hospital.

The program is located on the eastern end of Long Island, close to top rated beaches and natural beauty with easy access to airports and the New York metropolitan area.  Southampton is a paradise for those who love the outdoors and watersports. The east end of Long Island is perfect for boating, swimming, windsurfing, waterskiing, fishing, hiking, cycling, golfing, etc.

We offer the best of both worlds with a world renowned medical school and academic affiliation combined with real world practical experience in a suburban setting.

In addition to our curriculum based off of the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine, the Family Medicine Program also offers training in the following areas:

  • Integrative Medicine
  • Cultural Literacy
  • LGBT Medicine
  • Addiction Medicine
  • Palliative Care Medicine
  • Bio-psychosocial Medicine
  • Medical Acupuncture
  • Neuro-musculoskeletal Medicine
  • Medical Leadership

All of our trainees also experience a rotation in Social Medicine.  The field of social medicine seeks to: understand how social and economic conditions impact health, disease and the practice of medicine, and foster conditions in which this understanding can lead to a healthier society.  This rotation exposes trainees to ideas which will challenge their beliefs and compel self-reflection.  It will also help trainees broaden their understanding of entelechial processes as they relate to health and disease.
