The Stony Brook University School of Medicine is the medical school of Stony Brook University. The school is located in the Stony Brook University Hospital located at Stony Brook, NY.
The School of Medicine consists of eight basic science and 18 clinical Departments.

Stony Brook School of Medicine excels in all these pursuits. With world class, National Institute of Health-sponsored research programs in neurological diseases, cancer, cardiovascular disorders, biomedical imaging, regenerative medicine, and infectious diseases, among many other topics, we sit at the cutting edge of scientific discovery. By training nearly 500 medical students, and over 480 medical residents and fellows each year, we are one of the foremost institutes of higher medical education in the country. And by delivering world class medical care throughout 35,000 inpatient, 90,000 emergency room and 500,000 outpatient visits. Stony Brook Medicine is one of the largest and highest quality healthcare organizations on Long Island, and New York.
Our healthcare practitioners will develop a deep appreciation for the healing dynamic of the physician-patient relationship, in which compassionate care is manifested by attentive listening, empathy, respect and commitment. They will provide highly competent, safe and patient-centered care while demonstrating the highest level of professionalism and sensitivity to the diverse personal and cultural contexts in which medical care is delivered. We should instill in each School of Medicine graduate and faculty member the willingness to accept the professional responsibility to model and teach compassionate and diligent care in such a way as to inspire these virtues in others, regardless of circumstances.
