Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship Research

The Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship Program offers state-of-the-art training in addiction psychiatry in diverse clinical training sites. All research fellows are encouraged to develop and integrate their own research interests.

An individualized training experience is essential to ensure successful completion of ACGME training requirements and promote academic development. We encourage those who are new to research or their academic careers to devote no more than half-time to research during the first year. If you are farther along academically, you can spend more time in research under the guidance of the fellowship director and your primary research mentor.

The Department of Psychiatry offers the Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship Program to develop addiction psychiatric researcher-clinicians. The clinical research training program, funded by a NIMH R-25 grant, is a two-year program with two primary goals:

  1. Provide well-balanced clinical training to satisfy ACGME requirements for certification in addiction psychiatry.
  2. Provide mentorship, training, and protected time to conduct addiction research with our research faculty.

The clinical research program will train you to become a true clinician-scholar who:

  • Understands evidence-based behavioral therapies.
  • Employs medication-assisted therapies.
  • Is capable of educating physicians and the lay public about the science of addiction.
  • Has the opportunity to develop a career in addiction research and make a contribution to the field of addiction medicine.
