Training the Next Generation of Children's Doctors
As part of an academic medical institution and teaching hospital, Stony Brook Children’s offers programs for the training of the next generation of pediatricians and pediatric specialists.
We offer a pediatric residency plus a combined medicine and pediatrics training program that is uniquely suited for preparing physicians to provide a continuum of care for children with chronic disease. In addition, we have pediatric fellowship programs that provide advanced clinical and research training in neonatology, infectious diseases, gastroenterology, endocrinology, and academic general pediatrics, and are planning for a fellowship in pediatric emergency medicine. These programs serve as a pipeline to provide the community with pediatric practitioners, especially important in light of the pediatrician shortages projected for Suffolk County in the near future.
