The university’s impact on the Long Island economy amounts to $7.38 billion in increased output, and research expenditures have surpassed the $230 million mark annually
Stony Brook University is an excellent place to prepare for a future in medicine, dental medicine, and other health professions. Students pursuing health careers can major in many different disciplines, and work closely with Academic Advisors to complete the best courses in preparation for a future in healthcare.
Students are encouraged to explore academic interests in and out of the sciences, engaging in intellectual inquiry, independent study, and disciplined research. Stony Brook applicants who have been successful gaining acceptances into some of the top schools in their field, are well rounded individuals with strong health related experiences and other diverse activities. While medical schools accept all kinds of majors, they also expect applicants to have successfully completed certain “premed” courses. Stony Brook’s premed courses are recognized for their rigor and provide excellent preparation for the Medical School Admission Test(MCAT).
