Addiction Medicine Fellowship

*We are still accepting applications for the 2024-2025 Fellowship*

The Institute for Family Health offers a one-year fellowship in addiction medicine. Our program is designed to create champions of addiction medicine, who are well-equipped to provide compassionate care in a variety of primary care settings.

  • Primary care continuity clinic where Fellows will practice full scope family medicine. While patients suffering addiction will be a large part of the practice, immediate and extended family members will receive care as well. The fellow will be considered part of the provider team for their health center and participate in cross coverage of all the practice patients.
  • Outpatient Addiction Consultation visits in a Community Health Center setting, as well as participation in our Addiction Medicine Consultation Hotline, where Fellows will provide advice to their clinical colleagues on Addiction Medicine cases.
  • Public Health/Epidemiology activities directed by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYCDOHMH)
  • Inpatient rotations in the Mount Sinai Health System, focusing on Dual Diagnosis, Detox and Rehabilitation, and Inpatient Addiction Consultations.
  • Outpatient addiction treatment clinical rotations, including one month at Realization Center and one month in Greenwich House and once month at the Bronx VA.
  • Harm Reduction Rotations with the AIDS Center of Queens County (ACQC), providing pharmacological treatment (MAT) from their Syringe Exchange program.
  • Weekly Addiction Medicine Didactics and additional educational activities (such as NYSAM and ASAM conference attendance).
  • Ongoing Management of Hepatitis C infected patients until deemed independent by Infectious Disease Specialist.

We are actively recruiting for the 2024-2025 academic years.
