Family Medicine Residency


Thank you for your interest in the Family Medicine Residency Program at South Nassau Communities Hospital. We are a suburban, community-based, medical school-affiliated program, with easy access to New York City resources.

As the original program in our robust array of residency offerings, the family medicine residency program combines academics and education with hands-on, direct patient care. Our affiliations with several medical schools permit teaching opportunities throughout the residents' training.

The three years of residency training in family medicine are possibly the most important in one’s entire medical education. Applicants should know as much as possible about the programs they are considering. Our program is committed to providing the best possible educational experience for the resident.

The focus of the program is on education, with a strong didactic program and easy access to our Family Medicine faculty, as well as other specialists and subspecialists involved in our teaching program. We take pride in our warm, supportive educational environment, with personalized attention provided to each resident.

In addition to our full scope of family medicine education we have built a strong Sports Medicine platform, with our two fellowship trained Sports Medicine specialists. While training at South Nassau Communities Hospital you will have training in musculoskeletal motion testing instruction, become competent at implementing interventional joint and muscle procedures, and  become trained in concussion testing, management and recovery. You will also have an opportunity to cover local sporting events as the sports medicine physician team. The residents also rotate in two dedicated sports medicine clinics In both of our sites.

Our Family Medicine Centers, which were designed and built for residency training, are the hub of the residency program. We currently have a training center in Oceanside as well as in Long Beach, N.Y. It allows the full spectrum of family medicine to be practiced, including a large pediatric and women’s health population. Additionally, involvement with a community nursing home and area schools and agencies permits the residents to have a well-rounded inpatient and outpatient experience.

In the more than 35 years of the program’s operation, we have had more than 200 graduates. They practice medicine from coast to coast with a significant number practicing in our community and on staff at South Nassau.
