Fellows participate in teaching medical students and/or resident lectures on addictions-related topics. Every year, the general psychiatry residency holds a 14-lecture seminar on addictions for PGY-1 residents. Fellows historically have provided a lecture each for this seminar. Fellows are provided with instruction and feedback on teaching.
Teaching opportunities exist for fellows who are encouraged to present lectures to general psychiatry residents on addictions-based topics, or to provide medical student/resident education during the consultation/liaison (C/L) or inpatient rotations. In addition to clinical responsibilities, mentorship is provided through both formal and informal supervision of fellows by the clinical faculty.
