Welcome to the Stony Brook Ophthalmology Residency Site:
2012 Interview Dates: Thursday Nov 29, Saturday Dec 1, and Sunday, Dec 2.
The Stony Brook Ophthalmology residency is based at University Medical Center at Stony Brook - the only medical school and tertiary care facility on Long Island, serving a population of more than 2.8 million. Located 15 miles from the parent institution, the Northport VA hospital, as the only affiliate, is a 650 bed facility with 350,000 patient visits a year. There are more than 35,000 combined outpatient visits to the eye services at both institutions from the surrounding communities in Nassau and Suffolk County.
The Stony Brook Ophthalmology Residency Program will employ a competency-based curriculum to teach the 6 core competencies put forth by the ACGME. The competencies are incorporated into fifteen topical groups (modules) that define the essential areas of ophthalmic knowledge and fully described in our handbook - Competency-based Ophthalmology Curriculum. The goals and objectives of each module will be systematically taught through an organized series of educational activities: 1. Fully-supervised patient care, 2. Didactic conferences and 3. Supervised self-directed resident activities.
The program will continually evaluate residents (and the program) and review the results at the end of each rotation (twice a year) using a variety of instruments . New Innovations Software will be used to track the evaluation process.
