You’ll care for your own panel of patients at our department’s 2,500-square-foot suburban clinic, which integrates addiction medicine into a primary care outpatient setting.
At one of the region’s only dedicated addiction medicine practices, you’ll diagnose and treat patients for drug and — to a lesser extent — alcohol addiction. In addition, you’ll treat medical conditions related to, or exacerbated by, addiction.
You’ll coordinate your patients’ care, managing their buprenorphine treatment and collaborating with their primary care and behavioral health practitioners to provide optimal care.
One of our board-certified faculty members will serve as your preceptor, reviewing your progress and signing off on your notes.
In addition to providing outpatient care at this site, our faculty run the detoxification and rehabilitation units at Erie County Medical Center, site of your inpatient rotations.
