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.
