Boston University Addiction Medicine Fellowship

Program Objectives

The BU Addiction Medicine Fellowship Program goals are organized into four competency areas:

1.) Clinical Addiction Medicine

Focus is given on providing trainees a strong foundation in the components of clinical addiction prevention and treatment though a variety of supervised clinical experiences in a wide range of inpatient and outpatient settings, with a grounded longitudinal experience caring for patients with addiction.

2.) Analytic and Research Skills on Addiction Epidemiology & Health Services Delivery

Pillars of the research training are focused in Boston University’s School of Public Health (SPH) degree programs and further solidified through individual mentored research projects.

3.) Leadership, Teaching and Administration Skills

A focus on training future leaders in academic and public health addiction medicine prompts a public health rotation including didactic sessions and teaching seminars.

4.) Identity as an Addiction Medicine Physician

This is cultivated through the clinical addiction rotations, obtaining Board Certification in Addiction Medicine and participating in national addiction medicine scientific conferences.
