Addiction Medicine

Our national experts in addiction medicine lead the way in research that’s yielding training guidelines on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of this complex disease. 

Our department houses the National Center for Physician Training in Addiction Medicine, where researchers conduct clinical and medical education research in this evolving field.

In our ongoing efforts to expand addiction medicine training for future physicians, we develop curricula for addiction medicine fellowship programs and make recommendations for medical student/resident curricula, all while shedding light on the biological and behavioral changes triggered by substance use.
