Welcome

The United States is experiencing an unprecedented surge in overdose death, and communities across the nation are contending with widespread issues of substance use disorders. Medical schools must prepare students to care for individuals struggling with substance use disorders (SUDs), as well as more complex, co-occurring conditions, including psychiatric disorders and infectious diseases, that may accompany chronic substance use.

Current research activities include interprofessional work on emergent issues in SUD treatment, including how to modify treatment procedures in light of a drug supply saturated with illicit fentanyl and fentanyl analogues, incorporating telehealth into treatment programs, treating pregnant women struggling with SUDs, and developing specialized forms of trauma-informed care for individuals struggling with co-occurring SUD and mental health disorders. 

Addiction Medicine Fellowship

The addiction medicine fellowship focuses on the provision of care for persons with unhealthy substance use, SUDs, and other addictive disorders. You will practice in diverse settings including clinical medicine, public health, education, and research.
