We believe that the Stony Brook community offers the best of both worlds - a world-renowned medical school and academic center, combined with real-world practical experience. We are located in a suburban setting on Long Island, close to beaches and natural beauty, with easy access to the New York metropolitan area.
The mission of the SUNY Stony Brook Family Medicine Residency Program is to provide our residents with the foundation for life-long learning and service to patients and the community. We employ the principles of evidence-based medicine and translate this into providing excellent medical care to our patients. We emphasize the role of the physician as teacher and put a premium on taking a bio-psychosocial approach to the concerns of our patients and their families. Finally, we approach residency education with passion - our goal is to assist you into becoming a truly great family physician.
