Welcome to the Stony Brook Medicine website for Global Medical Education.  At Stony Brook Medicine we recognize the importance of global medical education and encourage students to gain first-hand experience at an international site.  We have developed a number of opportunities around the world that offer clinical, research, and cultural/language immersion  Dr. Sedlerexperiences. Our goals are to promote an understanding of the global burden of disease, to recognize health disparities and challenges to well-being in under-resourced settings, to appreciate the role of health systems and governance, to gain cultural and language competencies that expand professional horizons, and to foster a commitment to social justice. These opportunities will better prepare our students as physicians in the globalized world of the 21st century.
