Graduate Medical Education

Advanced Training for Interns and Residents

As a major clinical campus for the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, Peconic Bay Medical Center and PBMC Health host graduate medical education programs in Family Medicine, General Surgery and Traditional Rotating Internship.

With an excellent student-to-faculty ratio and an attentive and experienced medical staff, PBMC is able to offer its medical residents a diverse, dynamic and quality education. Though a relatively small facility, PBMC's medical staff has witnessed and treated a number of diverse and challenging diseases that are normally considered uncommon in a suburban setting.

Peconic Bay's 200+ medical staff members are all board certified or board eligible and the facility utilizes intensivists in its ICU and hospitalists on the medical and surgical units. As an active member of NYCOMEC (OPTI), PBMC is able to provide each resident with a strong support network.
