Academic medicine creates breakthrough treatments and novel approaches to training the next generation of healthcare providers.
At Stony Brook Medicine, our faculty are advancing the fight against kidney disease, addressing opioid use in pregnancy through a statewide task force, developing drugs for dangerous pathogens and pioneering treatments for catatonia. We are innovating medical education through our new three-year MD program, and highlighting the story of a Stony Brook University business graduate who became CEO of Harlem Hospital at age 37.
In this issue of Medicine Today, you’ll also read about how we are making medical treatment less frightening for our smallest patients at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, using a new “kitten scanner” to prepare for CAT scans in our Radiology Department.
Stony Brook Medicine is academic medicine at its finest, bringing the best ideas in medicine from the bench to the bedside, from the laboratory to the administrative suite, and beyond.
