Curriculum

Our one-year addiction medicine fellowship offers you in-depth clinical experience and a solid didactic education in our dynamic field.

Rotation Schedule

You’ll spend more than 1,900 hours training in clinical settings, many unopposed. 

Your inpatient training takes place at the chemical dependency unit of Erie County Medical Center, a major academic facility and the region’s primary safety-net hospital.

There, you’ll collaborate with medical and counseling specialists in the hospital’s detoxification unit, trauma and psychiatry emergency departments and medical and surgical floors.

As an integral team member, you’ll care for a range of different patient populations, including psychiatrically complex patients with comorbid addictions.

Our outpatient curriculum trains you to manage patients’ pharmacological needs and provide psychosocial care.

You’ll train in a variety of community training sites, including:

  • medical practices
  • not-for-profit agencies
  • hospital-sponsored clinics

During your yearlong continuity clinic, you’ll provide care to your own panel of patients both at outpatient SUD and OTP clinics.
