Responsibilities & Requirements


It is a very exciting time for the School of Social Welfare, the Health Sciences campus, and Stony Brook University. Stony Brook Medicine has become the lead institution in the New York State Medicaid Redesign effort in Suffolk County, and under the leadership of the School's new dean and assistant vice president, the School will have a prominent role in its development. The Delivery System Reform Incentive Program (DSRIP) program was created in New York State in collaboration with the US Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to enhance the access, improve the quality and reduce the cost of healthcare for Medicaid patients and individuals who have no ability to pay for healthcare. Stony Brook Medicine will coordinate healthcare across more than 500 primary care providers, all of the hospitals and skill nursing facilities, all of the community clinics and healthcare outreach organizations and 400,000 residents of Suffolk County. The School of Social Welfare will have major responsibility for two of DSRIP's most prominent initiatives - care coordination and initiating and sustaining collaborations with local residents and community providers. A prominent feature of this work will be to intervene and impact the social determinants - poverty, employment, housing, food security - that result in better outcomes for life success, health and well-being. The School has grown its student body, faculty, and staff significantly over the past five years. The School's faculty is deeply engaged in interdisciplinary practice, research, and education that will develop, implement, and disseminate evidence informed models of practice in the areas of integrated health, family, youth, and transitions to adulthood, and community and policy practice.
