  • Stony Brook Medicine Department of Radiology prides itself on a friendly collegial atmosphere in which all members collaborate and are supportive of each other. You, the radiology resident, are an integral part of the team on each rotation. Division Chiefs, who are recognized leaders, and additional faculty supervise each rotation. You will gradually assume additional responsibilities under supervision and with continuous backup support available.
  • The program is large (25 radiology residents), permitting separate and easy to manage junior and senior resident call schedules. 
  • Our residents do NOT take Interventional Radiology call from home (but are more than welcome to scrub in on emergent cases off-hours). 
  • 24/7 ultrasound technologist coverage.
  • 24/7 in-house attending coverage in the Emergency Room. 
  • Stony Brook University Hospital is the only ACS-certified Level One Trauma Center for Suffolk County. It also boasts the only renal transplant service on Long Island, Suffolk County Burn Center, extensive cardiovascular and thoracic surgical services, and is the tertiary care center for Pediatrics and Neonatology in Long Island.
  • Rotations through the nearby Northport VA Medical Center provide additional experience with chronic illnesses, which are less common in the acute care university hospitals. The Northport VAMC has an outstanding faculty, each of whom practices a broad spectrum of radiology rather than focus on a narrow subspecialty. A copy of the Curriculum, Goals and Objectives for each rotation is available on this website.
  • Residents are provided regular and frequent feedback on their progress and the residents also evaluate the attending faculty in an ongoing quality improvement process.
