Residency Program: Prerequisites
Prior to entry into Stony Brook’s Residency in General Preventive Medicine and Public Health, applicants are required to have competed at least one year (PGY1) of postgraduate clinical training within a residency program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Preference will be given to candidates who are board eligible in another field of medicine.
Eligible applicants must also have taken Step III of the USMLE before the beginning of their Preventive Medicine residency training.
If an applicant is applying directly from medical school, the Department of Preventive Medicine may assist in obtaining placement for clinical training within the Stony Brook consortium at University Hospital and other hospitals affiliated with Stony Brook University School of Medicine.
