As a major clinical campus for the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, and with more than 50 clinical faculty to support our programs, Peconic Bay Medical Center offers outstanding medical training in a supportive clinical environment.

Through our active membership in NYCOMEC (OPTI), we work to provide each of our residents with a strong support network and valuable professional relationships that will last long beyond their years of residency. Our residents graduate from our programs superbly prepared for their careers.




We currently offer residency programs in Family Medicine and General Surgery, in which residents receive specialty-focused instruction and experience under the supervision of highly trained clinical specialists. We also offer the broad experience of a Traditional Rotating Internship, for which PBMC’s range of services and facilities provides an ideal learning environment.
