Winthrop Established as a Regional Clinical Campus

On December 1, 2011, Winthrop formally announced its designation as a Clinical Campus of Stony Brook University�s School of Medicine. The new status for Winthrop was formally approved by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), the national accrediting body for medical schools, which defines a regional clinical campus as �a geographically separated campus, but under the central administrative or program governance of the medical school.� A regional clinical campus typically hosts third- and fourth-year medical students for the majority of their clinical experience and classroom training.

�There are many rigorous standards that must be met in order to qualify for designation as a clinical campus,� said Winthrop-University Hospital Chief Academic Officer John F. Aloia, MD, Dean of the Winthrop campus. �This major achievement greatly enriches the culture of our Hospital through the constant inquiry that comes with higher education and the youthful enthusiasm of these new full-time members of the Winthrop team.�

Winthrop has been a major teaching affiliate of the Stony Brook University School of Medicine for over 40 years, with medical students completing rotations in a wide variety of disciplines. At the Winthrop Clinical Campus, 40 third-year and 40 fourthyear students will join us annually, beginning with the third-year cohort that arrived in July. The students attend both clinical rotations and didactic sessions at Winthrop, and return to Stony Brook to take a final exam at the end of each clerkship rotation. The majority of the Winthrop campus students currently live on campus.

Designation as a Clinical Campus is the logical and exciting extension of Winthrop�s long tradition of undergraduate medical education and ACGMEAccredited Graduate Medical Education Programs. A hearty �Welcome!� to the Pioneer Class of the Winthrop Clinical Campus.
