Program
Description

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine Addiction Fellowship Program is a comprehensive one year clinical or two year research substance abuse training program providing the opportunity for clinical and basic research in an academic setting, in addition to exciting clinical experiences. Located in the Bronx, NY, the Einstein Division of Substance Abuse (DoSA) is one of the largest academically affiliated Opioid Treatment Programs in the country.

Drawing on an ethnically diverse socio-economic patient population, Fellows get a wide variety of clinical experiences ranging from Opioid Replacement Treatment with Methadone and Buprenorphine, MICA (Adult as well as Adolescent Outpatient Treatment), Inpatient Detoxification Unit, as well as a General Hospital-Based Substance Abuse Consultation Service at Montefiore Medical Center.

There is an opportunity to carry patients over a period of the full training experience treating MICA patients and providing both psychotherapeutic and psychopharmacologic management. Fellows have an opportunity to interact with an interdisciplinary team in the various clinical settings.

Within a collegial atmosphere, supervision is provided by excellent Clinical and Academic Faculty with considerable experience with the addiction population. We draw from applicants throughout the United States with both a clinical and research orientation.

Fellows participate in case conferences and seminars while connecting to a wide variety of faculty throughout the Einstein Division of Substance Abuse and the Montefiore Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.
