Riverhead - Teaching programs are designed to develop personal, professional and clinical competence under the guidance of faculty and staff. The Residency Program at Peconic Bay Medical Center has an impressive resident-to-faculty ratio and an attentive and experienced medical staff. As an active member of the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine Educational Consortium (NYCOMEC), Peconic Bay Medical Center is able to provide each resident with a strong support network.

As PBMC continues to expand programs and services to meet the health care needs of the community, the Residency programs are no exception. Last year PBMC's Residency program consisted of Family Medicine Residency and a Traditional Rotating Internship; PBMC has now developed an additional program in General Surgery, in conjunction with East End Alliance affiliate Southampton Hospital, resulting in the selection of four new General Surgery residents. Along with 12 Family Medicine residents and eight Traditional Rotating Interns, PBMC has a total of 24 residents and interns. "The clinical training we provide our residents are a beneficial resource for medical knowledge to continuously evolve, thereby enforcing our commitment of providing excellent medical care to the communities" says George Ruggiero, D.O., and PBMC Director of Medical Education. "We provide the real-life settings necessary to further their education and sharpen their skill. Residents and interns have exposure to a wide range of procedures and patient population".

Peconic Bay Medical Center is committed to quality graduate medical education and excellence in residency training. With the growing population of Eastern Long Island, it is important residents are provided with a superior academic foundation to become physicians that patients trust to provide quality, comprehensive healthcare. The Graduate Medical Education department offers its residents a diverse, dynamic and quality education while raising the level of care at Peconic Bay Medical Center.

Located in Riverhead, NY Peconic Bay Medical Center is a non-profit medical facility offering a wide range of advanced programs. Home to the award-winning Kanas Center for Advanced Surgery and the daVinci Surgical Robotics Programs, Peconic Bay is also a designated Stroke Center and Bariatric Center of Excellence. A member of the East End Health Alliance, Peconic Bay is also affiliated with Stony Brook University Hospital.
