Program Description and Target Audience
The training is supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) grant and there is no tuition for fellows.
FIT is a four-day intensive immersion training that equips incoming and current clinical subspecialty fellows with state-of-the-art skills and content to integrate addiction medicine into clinical research. Upon completion of the training, fellows will develop and carry out a research project relating to substance use.
The FIT Program will be hosted in conjunction with the Chief Resident Immersion Training (CRIT) Program in Addiction Medicine to obtain similar evidence-based skills. Click here to learn more about CRIT.
After completion of the training, FIT fellows will:
- Understand the scientific foundation of addiction medicine and its medical complications.
- Pursue opportunities that integrate substance use issues in HIV, hepatitis C, or pain research projects.
- Improve clinical skills in addiction medicine.
