Educational Needs Addressed:
The Immersion Training program seeks to provide faculty mentors with the scientific foundation of addiction medicine and state-of-the-art substance use (SU) diagnosis and management skills, in order to facilitate integration of SU content into residency program curricula and chief resident teaching. Prior experience indicates that the education of chief residents may be more effective when they are paired with a faculty mentor; therefore the program codifies previous experience with this training modality.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Understand the scientific foundation of addiction
- Improve addiction clinical skills
- Integrate addiction issues into teaching
- Learn about career and research opportunities in addiction medicine
- Enhance faculty mentoring skills
