Thank you for your interest in Stony Brook Medicine.

As a premier academic medical center, Stony Brook Medicine is proud to sponsor a wide array of graduate medical education training options at six locations. We offer 65 ACGME accredited residencies and fellowships in a broad range of specialties, as well as the School of Dental Medicine's six residency and fellowship programs, plus a podiatry and a pharmacy program. A nurse practitioner program is planned for the near future.

Our goal is for our trainees to complete their education demonstrating clinical excellence, a commitment to patient welfare and safety, and a drive to continue their learning throughout their lives. Because of the outstanding education and experience they gain here. our graduates go on to busy, satisfying careers in clinical practice, research, medical education and global health.

Stony Brook University Hospital is a bustling tertiary academic medical center.  Many of our programs are the only ones like it in Suffolk County: We are a Level 1 Trauma Center, perform bone marrow and kidney transplants, provide a dedicated Pediatric Emergency Room staffed by physicians trained in Pediatric Emergency Medicine, and host advanced centers in Cancer, Breast Care, Pediatrics, Cardiac Care, Neurosciences, Bariatric and Metabolic Care, Women’s Health, and Vascular Medicine among others. We are also home to a robust research enterprise, affording residents and fellows the opportunity to participate in meaningful bench and clinical research, and to learn the skills needed to continue research in their careers after training.

I invite you to learn more about the wonderful residency and fellowship opportunities at Stony Brook and look forward to receiving your application.

What makes Stony Brook great for residents and fellows? Watch.
