Program Director's Message
Choosing the right Residency Program is a key career decision. Winthrop-University Hospital will provide you with excellent clinical teaching, research opportunities, fellowship opportunities, career support and placement. I encourage you to consider Winthrop's Internal Medicine Residency Training Program. Winthrop sets the highest academic standards and expectations while providing the opportunity for residents to learn in a nurturing learning environment that encourages clinical excellence and scholarship.
Residents truly find our training program to be "Welcoming and World Class" with a Chairman dedicated to residency education, scholarship and career advancement, experienced Program Directors directly involved with your education, and a dedicated faculty of teachers, mentors, and supervisors. The daily interactions that take place provide personal attention, prompt responses to clinical questions, and close professional relationships between residents and faculty.
Winthrop-University Hospital is a clinical campus for Stony Brook University School of Medicine. Our faculty and residents maintain teaching faculty appointments at the Stony Brook University’s Department of Medicine. Medical students rotate through our department's clerkships, subinternships, and elective rotations. Winthrop faculty have consistently been selected for the medical school’s most prestigious teaching awards.
Winthrop’s Internal Medicine Residency Program emphasizes direct patient care. Residents assume increased responsibility for patients as their training progresses. Residents have an essential role in supervising and teaching our medical students. This experience facilitates the development of leadership and teaching skills.
Residents are directly involved in the ongoing assessment of training program. Participation in our Residency Education and Planning Committee ensures regular involvement of the residents in shaping their program. In addition, residents participate as members of the Winthrop-University Hospital House Staff Committee, acting as liaisons to the hospital’s academic and clinical administration.
Winthrop-University Hospital’s Internal Medicine Program is recognized for high academic achievement in an optimal learning environment, enabling residents to reach their full potential in clinical medicine, research, teaching, and team leadership. Graduates of our program are well prepared to pursue highly competitive fellowship training, an academic career, or to enter clinical practice.
Cultural and socioeconomic diversity, and a rich case mix further strengthen our program. Winthrop-University Hospital’s patient base includes a large immigrant population and economically disadvantaged communities. Our housestaff truly contribute to the well-being of the community, participating in local health fairs and community education programs.
Winthrop's location is ideal, only 30 minutes by train from NYC, with a Long Island Railroad station directly outside our hospital. In addition there are countless restaurants, beaches and marinas, professional sports teams, and convenient shopping conveniently located within minutes of our institution.
