COVID-19 Response

Looking back to at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 to now, our program, and most importantly, our residents have demonstrated incredible flexibility and adaptability These are clear strengths at Stony Brook Children's! 

We are also proud of our institution’s involvement in cutting-edge research, national clinical trials, and many COVID-related research projects. Our hospital’s collaboration among departments and subspecialties and centralized communication enabled us to have relatively low COVID mortality rates and significant success in treatment of patients infected with COVID-19 and subsequent Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C). Our own pediatric faculty immediately developed outstanding collaborative educational webinars to help our residents and department gain better insight into this rapidly evolving disease. Additionally, Stony Brook Children’s served as a national clinical trial site for Moderna’s pediatric COVID vaccine, helping to contribute scientific data that would benefit children everywhere.

Currently, all outpatient offices are open and volume has returned to pre-pandemic levels--- actually, it’s even busier now! Our offices have adapted by continuing to offer telehealth visits for visits particularly amenable to the viral visit platform. Our residents have gained a new important skill set through telehealth patient visits.

Additional items to note:
•    All of our conferences and meetings, including Afternoon Case Conference and Wednesday block didactics are in-person. 
•    PALS and NRP training are in-person.
•    Mock codes are conducted in-person.
•    Mentors and mentees, advisors and advisees are typically meeting in person, but the virtual option provides flexibility for whatever works best for them. Our beautiful campus and hospital have many locations outside of the typical office spaces for these meetings to occur if our residents and faculty are looking to meet in a more casual space.
•    Our Annual Pediatric Research Day is in-person. 
•    All retreats and orientations are in-person.

We know that if you choose to join Stony Brook Pediatrics for your residency, you’ll not only receive phenomenal education and training in pediatrics, but you’ll become part of something special-- a residency family!

Although we are not required to wear masks in the hallways any longer, we are wering masks for patient encounters in the hospital. But, check out the video below for an informal quick tour around the hospital.
