Historical Note
Source: "Stony Brook University School of Health Technology and Management Strategic Plan, 2010-2020"

"The School of Health Technology and Management was established in 1970 by Dr. Edmund McTernan. The School of Allied Health Professions, (SAHP) as it was initially known, was one of the first schools to be developed in support of what was to become the highly anticipated Stony Brook University Hospital, which opened in 1981. At a time when most allied health profession programs were hospital based certificate programs, the school met a growing local need for quality health care professionals and attracted high caliber clinical faculty to educate the next generation.

By 1993, the school had a new dean in Dr. Lorna McBarnette, who ultimately decided to change the name of the school to what she felt more accurately reflected the programs and mission of the school, and so the School of Health Technology and Management was born. Change was once again on the horizon in 1999, after McBarnette's departure, and the present administration assumed full responsibility of the school. Since then, the school has seen significant changes in its culture that have resulted in unprecedented growth in both enrollment and demand for its students. With a well deserved reputation for producing outstanding health professionals in all disciplines, SHTM has maintained its focus on high quality education with an interdisciplinary approach to the process while expanding its offerings to include graduate education in the fields of physician assistant education (MS), physical therapy (D-PT) and occupational therapy (BS/MS.) Concurrently, Dean Lehmann broadened his mandate to include a stronger focus on research efforts by the faculty. Such a change required an adjustment not only in the number of faculty but on the training required by each. For example, in 2000, of 45 full time faculty, only 7,( or 15%), were doctorally prepared, compared to 27 of 65,( or 43%) in 2010. While such a dramatic change has required willingness on the part of all concerned to rededicate themselves to a new direction, the investment has been well worth it.

Today, the school boasts a two million dollar sponsored research benchmark stemming from a diverse pool of funding agencies. From pediatric obesity and cancers, to women's cardiac issues and tele-health Ie-health advances that will surely change the landscape of health care for the foreseeable future, SHTM faculty continue to embrace and indeed, lead the way in their respective fields. Now the largest school in the Health Sciences Center with over 1072 students, SHTM stands poised once again to not only serve its local and national constituencies, but to further demonstrate that it is a leader among schools of its kind. In fact, in the fall of 201 0, SHTM received approval of a new PhD program in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences (HRS) which will prepare researchers, educators, and leaders with the advanced skills related to health and rehabilitation sciences needed by academic institutions, government agencies, consulting firms, and the private sector.
