Opportunities to Make a Difference
@ the Department of Medicine
At Stony Brook’s Department of Medicine, every gift matters. Regardless of the amount, each and every gift is important to the future of the Department's critical mission to provide exemplary clinical care, advance the nature of this care through research, and train the next generation of outstanding caregivers.
The Department of Medicine encompasses many outstanding divisions, including: Cardiology; Endocrinology & Metabolism; Gastroenterology & Hepatology; General, Geriatric & Hospital Medicine; Hematology & Oncology; Infectious Diseases; Nephrology & Hypertension; Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine; and Rheumatology, Allergy & Immunology. We provide care for heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, IBD, lupus, Lyme disease, coronavirus, Yao syndrome, and more.
Philanthropy is critical to our success. Your investments enable us to recruit and retain the greatest minds for our faculty, acquire state-of-the-art technology for discovery, and create new knowledge to propel healthcare advances forward.
The three missions of Stony Brook Medicine are to advance our understanding of the origins and the treatment 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 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, infectious diseases, and many other topics, we create knowledge at the cutting edge of scientific discovery. As part of Stony Brook University Renaissance School of Medicine, we train over 1,200 medical students, residents and fellows to become leaders in compassionate, accurate, and innovative clinical medicine in our network of quarternary hospitals, community hospitals, and ambulatory care network. And by delivering world class medical care to 34,000 inpatients, 105,000 emergency room patients and more than 800,000 outpatients annually, we are Long Island’s premier academic medical center.
Thanks to friends like you, Stony Brook Medicine physicians perform groundbreaking procedures, robotic-assisted surgery and offer our patients the most up-to-date protocols and interventions.

- Applied and basic research within the medical school and graduate schools of the university, and specialized facilities and services facilitating a variety of research objectives.
