2016 Residency Announcement

JTM

As of July 1, 2016, Mather Hospital is proud to offer 4 Stony Brook Medicine sponsored residency programs: Internal Medicine, Psychiatry, Radiology and a Transitional Year.  Detailed information about each program can be found on the Mather Hospital website, but please feel free to click below for a brief summary of each program and photos of each resident. 

Internal Medicine

Internal Medicine

Mather Hospital commenced its Internal Medicine residency on July 1, 2014 and is now running at full compliment. Our 3-year categorical program accepts 15 residents per year and has an additional 4 preliminary positions available for those needing one solid of year of primary care before transferring to a specialty program.  Our program utilizes a unique 4+2 rotation model. This means that each resident will cycle through 4 weeks of inpatient/elective rotations followed by 2 weeks of dedicated ambulatory time. During the ambulatory blocks, there are no inpatient responsibilities, and likewise, during inpatient rotations, there are no ambulatory sessions. The 4+2 model allows residents to focus solely on their clinic patients and also improves patient outcomes by reducing the number of hand-offs. This model enhances the continuity experience by providing greater flexibility for patient scheduling and allowing for more continuity sessions over the three years of training.

Psychiatry

Psychiatry

On July 1, 2016, Mather Hospital began training of their first class of Psychiatry residents. This 4 year program accepts 5 residents per year into our community hospital setting with an inpatient adult psychiatric unit, an adult partial hospitalization program and the only adolescent partial hospitalization program and acute care adolescent psychiatric unit in Suffolk County. Our graduating residents will have developed the requisite expertise in neuroscience in its relation to psychiatric illness, pathophysiology of psychiatric and neuropsychiatric conditions and evidence-based approaches that are at the foundation of modern mental health treatment. Our program develops residents that can meet the challenges of modern medical practice and are able to critically evaluate scientific literature.

Radiology

Radiology

Mather Hospital commenced their first class of Diagnostic Radiology residents on July 1, 2016.  This 4 year program accepts 3 residents per year who have already completed one year of a preliminary or transitional year in another program.  The SUNY at Stony Brook/ Mather Hospital Diagnostic Radiology Program is designed to provide residents with the knowledge and skills that are required for any possible future experience in radiology that they might aspire to – be it a research position at a university, clinical sub-specialty practice at a major medical center, or a general radiology practice in a community setting.

Transitional Year

Transitional Year

Since its inception on July 1, 2015, Mather Hospital has offered a one year Transitional Year program for medical school graduates who require an intern year of generalized training before entering a specialty program in the PGY-2 year such as Radiology, Neurology, Anesthesiology, Ophthalmology or Dermatology.  Co-sponsored by two categorical training programs, Mather Internal Medicine and Stony Brook Radiology, our program is designed to provide a well-balanced curriculum of graduate medical education in a variety of disciplines.  The program may also provide clinical education for those medical school graduates who will serve in public health organizations, serve on active duty in the military as general medical officers or primary flight/undersea medicine physicians or need to acquire at least one year of fundamental clinical education before entering administrative medicine or non-clinical research.
