Past graduates

Northwell Health has an extensive alumni network. Our past graduates serve as a resource to current trainees for educational development as well as career assistance. Following graduation, our trainees have gone on to a number of areas within their chosen specialty, including private practice, ambulatory medicine, hospital medicine,  academics, administration, global health, nursing home care, etc.  Some of our graduates have gone onto one of the several fellowship programs available to family medicine physicians : sports medicine, hospice & palliative care, adolescent medicine, sleep medicine, geriatrics, integrative medicine, to name a few. Our goal is to train our residents to be the best family physicians capable of practicing in whichever career they eventually choose.
