“There are lots of resources here for wellness. I feel as though they’re always here to support us. They always give us enough time off. They’re always looking to making sure that we never go over our hours. And it is always easy to reach out if you're feeling exhausted.”
— Elizabeth Watson, Pain Management Fellow
Wellness at Stony Brook goes far beyond the care we provide to our patients. We know that residency and fellowship training, while fulfilling, can also put a strain on one’s physical, emotional and financial wellbeing. To support your needs, there are many resources in place to help with the daily demands of being a physician at Stony Brook.
Fatigue Mitigation Transportation Reimbursement for Trainees
