Education and research are core components of Stony Brook Medicine’s Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology Program. Our team members are faculty of the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University. Nursing students, senior medical students and resident physicians in Obstetrics and Gynecology rotate through our service and participate in clinical care. During this time, students and trainees learn about the diagnosis and management of important gynecologic conditions in children and teens and gain experience in providing developmentally appropriate gynecologic care.
Dr. Cardamone also regularly participates in resident education through lectures as well as medical simulation. The Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology curriculum includes core topics such as pre-pubertal gynecologic conditions, abnormal puberty, menstrual disorders and adolescent endometriosis. Simulation is used to teach pediatric examination and surgical techniques and to allow trainees to practice in a safe environment.
Our team also participates in research studies on HIV, fertility preservation and utilizing simulation in medical education.
