Research and Education

As an academic medical center, research is at the core of Stony Brook's mission because it helps to advance the practice of medicine and raises the standard of care in the community. Our team members are active participants in ongoing research studies, as well as authors of highly regarded research papers.

The Division of Pediatric Surgery is part of the general surgical residency program at Stony Brook. In addition, third and fourth year medical students participate in active clinical rotations through the department. For patients and families, this means that Stony Brook remains on the leading edge of medicine, continually invigorating its program with fresh viewpoints, a lively exchange of ideas, and the region's next generation of top doctors.

Stony Brook Children's Services is offering Telehealth services which will allow our patients to receive our high-quality care from the safety and privacy of their home.

To see if your pediatric needs can be met virtually, please call Stony Brook Children's Service at (631) 444-KIDS.

If you have already booked a Telehealth visit and have questions about connecting to Microsoft Teams for your visit, please call one of our representatives at (631) 638-0597 Monday through Friday from 8 am to 6 pm. They will be happy to assist you.
