Comprehensive Specialty Training
Addiction psychiatry fellows have opportunities to teach other physicians, residents, medical students, allied health care professionals, graduate-level scientists, undergraduates and/or the community about the science and clinical care of addiction disorders. A core responsibility of fellows in this program is organizing and hosting the Continuing Medical Education (CME)-accredited addiction psychiatry symposium.
Through a mentored collaboration with addiction psychiatry faculty, fellows participate in research activities that may involve basic, clinical, health services or epidemiological studies.
Representing the backbone of the addiction psychiatry fellowship experience, fellows perform an array of clinical duties at the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center and at Eskenazi Health Midtown Community Mental Health sites. Clinical duties encompass psychotherapeutic and pharmacological management of addiction and dual diagnoses with special opportunities for involvement in the treatment of adolescents and expectant mothers as well as substance disorders in persons with mental illness, including PTSD, schizophrenia, and bipolar and borderline personality disorders.
