Highlights of our program include:
Outstanding teaching hospital with diverse patient populations. Stony Brook Children’s Hospital has expanded significantly over the past 10 years and opened the doors to a new, 104-bed pediatric facility in November, 2019. The new Children’s Hospital offers state-of-the-art technologies with single-bed rooms designed for delivery of care at the bedside and includes a General Pediatrics Ward, Hematology Oncology Unit, a PICU, an Adolescent Unit, and an in-patient Psychiatry Unit. The child-friendly setting provides patients and families a safe and beautiful healing environment complete with several play rooms, a live video feed from the Long Island Aquarium, and a lush outdoor rooftop garden. In addition, families can take respite in the Ronald McDonald Family Room, which has become a prototype for other institutions, or in the on-campus Ronald McDonald House, which will break ground in the near future. Stony Brook has an academic affiliation with two nearby renowned research facilities, Cold Spring Harbor and the Brookhaven National Laboratory.
Unwavering emphasis on the teaching mission of the fellowship program, with both extemporaneous bedside teaching and a structured didactic program. We have a 100% first-time board pass rate over the past ten years. Our fellows pursue scholarly endeavors including investigator-initiated clinical research and outcomes research, and are all authors of scholarly publications in peer-reviewed journals.
A fabulous place to live. Suffolk County and the Stony Brook area are beautiful, safe environments with an abundance of nearby and easily accessible venues, including pristine beaches for surfers and sunbathers, and scenic bike trails for riders of all skill levels. Our charming villages, local wineries, and a wide variety of casual pubs and 4-star restaurants offer entertainment options for all tastes. With a world class University right across the road, you have ready access to film festivals, concerts, and sporting events. Our local school systems are nationally top-rated, with an annual slate of finalists and semifinalists for Intel and Siemens-Westinghouse science awards and National Merit Scholarships.
Exceptional career preparation. Many of our graduates accept faculty positions in academic programs, while others pursue careers in private practice settings.
An upbeat, caring, experienced administrative staff that emphasizes service. I invite you to visit and explore what we have to offer!
