Accreditation Information for Faculty Members

Continuing Medical Education sponsored by Boston University School of Medicine.

Boston University School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide Continuing Medical Education for Physicians.

This activity has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM.

Target Audience:

Faculty mentors of senior residents or fellows who have accepted a chief resident position in Internal Medicine or Family Medicine.

Educational Needs Addressed:

The Chief Resident Immersion Training (CRIT) 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.


Educational Objectives:

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
