Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship Program
The Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship focuses on training the fellow on the prevention, evaluation, and treatment of substance-related disorders as well as providing related education and research. The addiction psychiatrist will be fully trained in techniques required in the treatment of the larger group of patients with dual diagnoses of addictive disorders and other psychiatric disorders. The field of addiction psychiatry requires knowledge of pharmacology, psychiatry, general medicine, as well as an understanding of the interaction of these disciplines.
A typical rotation schedule includes:
→ Buprenorphine group
→ Inpatient Unit
→ Intensive Outpatient
→ Psychopharm Outpatient Clinic
→ SATC (Substance Abuse Treatment Center)

In addition to the PGY-5 Clinical Fellowship described above, we have an Addiction Research Fellowship Program funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and National Institute on Alcohol and Alcoholism (NIAA). This fellowship can begin in the PGY-4 or PGY-5 year.
