Research and teaching are important elements of all Stony Brook Children’s Hospital programs. Transition Services leader Jonathan Tolentino, MD, is a visiting associate professor in the departments of pediatric primary care and internal medicine. He has conducted research on a variety of topics related to med-peds clinical practice and education, innovations in diabetes care, and uninsured young adult use of the emergency department.
Each of our physicians also serves as a member of the faculty of the Stony Brook University School of Medicine. Under staff supervision, medical residents who wish to specialize in internal medicine-pediatrics may polish their clinical, psychosocial, and community leadership skills in our Med-Peds Clinic.
