Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship

The goal of the addiction psychiatry program is to train psychiatrists skilled in the recognition, assessment, and treatment of persons with substance use disorders whether alone or in combination with other psychiatric and medical disorders. Graduating fellows will be trained for future leadership roles as practitioners and educators in the field of addiction psychiatry. Exceptional skill development in performing diagnostic evaluations, providing somatic, cognitive and behavioral therapies, understanding and critical analyzing the literature is promoted. The fellowship is a 12 month ACGME accredited program at the PGY-5 level. An additional year may be available for the fellow with specific interests such as research and other scholarly activities.
