Addiction Psychiatry Fellows


In addition to clinical responsibilities, fellows are expected to participate in educational activities by teaching medical students and/or resident lectures on addictions-related topics. Every year, the general psychiatry residency hold a 14-lecture seminar on addictions for PGY-1 residents. Fellows historically have provided a lecture each for this seminar. Note: fellows are provided with instruction and feedback on teaching.

Mentorship is provided through both formal and informal supervision of fellows by the clinical faculty. We have a 100 percent pass rate for Addiction Psychiatry (ABPN) board examination.
