    The three missions of the Stony Brook School of Medicine are to advance our understanding of the origins of human health and disease, to train the next generation of committed, curious and highly capable physicians, and to deliver world-class, compassionate healthcare.  Stony Brook School of Medicine excels in all these pursuits.  With world class, National Institute of Health-sponsored research programs in neurological diseases, cancer, cardiovascular disorders, biomedical imaging, regenerative medicine, and infectious diseases, among many other topics, we sit at the cutting edge of scientific discovery.  By training nearly 500 medical students, and over 480 medical residents and fellows each year, we are one of the foremost institutes of higher medical education in the country. And by delivering world class medical care throughout 35,000 inpatient, 90,000 emergency room and 500,000 outpatient visits. Stony Brook Medicine is one of the largest and highest quality healthcare organizations on Long Island, and New York.
