At Stony Brook Southampton Family Medicine Residency Program we know that you want to be an excellent Family Medicine physician equipped to practice in today's dynamic medical landscape.  You need a robust family medicine training program that will fit your needs and open doors for you.  Many residency programs will only focus on requirements needed for ACGME, whereas we believe that a small community hospital, with university hospital resources, and a focus on Social Medicine with Integrative Medicine, Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine and Palliative Medicine education, is the optimal environment to produce an ideal family medicine physician.

Here is how we do it: 


We have two continuity clinic sites that are vastly different in patient population:

Westhampton Primary Care at The Christiane and Richard Hiegel Healthcare Center
 a comprehensive, family-centered medical center for patients of all ages serving Westhampton and the surrounding communities.



In addition to the required curriculum, we offer training and rotations in Integrative Medicine, Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine, Palliative Medicine and Social Medicine.



We emphasize collaboration with our healthcare team and the surrounding community.

Note From The Program Director

We welcome you to the Stony Brook Family Medicine Residency Program at Southampton and are glad that you are interested in learning more about us.  The mission of our program is to create medical leaders with a commitment to life-long learning, and the ideals of Social Medicine. We employ the principles of evidence-based medicine and  translate this into providing excellent medical care to our patients. To that end, we offer training in Integrative Medicine, Medical Acupuncture, Biopsychosocial Medicine, Hospice and Palliative Medicine, and Addiction Medicine.  We emphasize the role of the physician as leader and put a premium on taking a comprehensive approach to the care of our patients in the office and hospital.

The program is located on the eastern end of Long Island, close to top rated beaches and natural beauty with easy access to airports and the New York metropolitan area. Southampton is a paradise for those who love the outdoors and watersports. The east end of Long Island is perfect for boating, swimming, windsurfing, waterskiing, fishing, hiking, cycling, golfing, etc.

We offer the best of both worlds with a world renowned medical school and academic affiliation combined with real world practical experience in a suburban setting.

All of our trainees experience a rotation in Social Medicine. The field of social medicine seeks to: understand how social and economic conditions impact health, disease and the practice of medicine, and foster conditions in which this understanding can lead to a healthier society. This rotation exposes trainees to ideas which will challenge their beliefs and compel self-reflection.  It will also help trainees broaden their understanding of entelechial processes as they relate to health and disease.
