Stony Brook Medicine sponsors more than 55 ACGME accredited residencies and fellowships in a broad range of specialties, as well as the School of Dental Medicine’s residency and fellowship programs. We are home to more than 700 residents and fellows who train in varying specialties at our home institution and affiliated hospitals, Southampton Hospital, and at John T. Mather Memorial Hospital. Working in coordination with these affiliated hospitals, we provide the clinical education of residents and fellows, as well as clinical research opportunities and comprehensive primary and specialty care experiences.

At Stony Brook Medicine, we strive to maintain an academic environment committed to the highest standards in education and medical care that would foster excellence in the education of physicians during residency and fellowship training. Our mission is to improve the lives of our patients, families and communities, educate skilled healthcare professionals and conduct research that expands clinical knowledge.
