Stony Brook Emergency Medicine

Program Description

Type of Program

Stony Brook University Hospital is the major Tertiary Care and Level 1 Trauma center for all of Eastern Long Island (1.5 million) with ~125K visits per year.

What sets us apart is the remarkably talented, invested, and world-renowned faculty here at Stony Brook. The residency program and fellowships are led by outstanding clinician-educators, and the EUS fellowship is no exception. We offer the rare opportunity to collaborate with the Resuscitation & Critical Care Medicine Fellowship led by Scott Weingart, and the International Fellowship associated with Billy Mallon. You cannot get an experience like this anywhere else.

Emergency ultrasound is a small and close-knit community, so we also encourage collaboration with our colleagues in the Tri-State area. We offer conference participation and networking opportunities across the eastern seaboard.

Our Emergency Department gives ultrasound fellows the opportunity to scan a high volume of trauma, critical care, and pediatric patients. Our 3-year Residency Program now has 16 residents per class who are all eager to learn from fellows.


Year Fellowship Started:

In July 2016, we acquired new ultrasound faculty, machines, and departmental support for our revamped fellowship program.

Our first class of Ultrasound Fellows started in July 2017 and had teaching & learning opportunities in Manhattan, Newport RI, Santiago Chile, and Saint Lucia. Upcoming for 2018 includes Brazil, Fiji, Saint Lucia and beyond.
