Research and Education

As part of Suffolk County's only academic medical center, Stony Brook Children's is committed to training the next generation of physicians. Each year, a group of residents rotate through the Department of Pediatric Urology, not only gaining valuable experience in state-of-the-art medicine, but also continually infusing the program with the latest ideas and approaches.

The Department is also committed to advancing the field of pediatric urology by participating in bench and clinical research. Dr. Wasnick and Dr. Young have published numerous peer-reviewed articles and text book chapters on topics covering the range of pediatric urology. The department is actively involved in a number of ongoing research projects and continues to publish and present their results at national and international meetings.
