Rushford’s Addiction Medicine Fellowship offers physicians a one-year training opportunity in the evaluation and treatment of patients with substance use disorders.
Each fellow will train across a broad array of clinical settings at Rushford’s five Connecticut campuses and other institutions within the Hartford HealthCare Behavioral Health Network, including The Institute of Living/Hartford Hospital.
Candidates will gain exposure to traditional addiction specialty and related inpatient and outpatient programs, including detoxification, dual diagnosis, acute intoxication and withdrawal syndromes, medication-assisted treatment for opiate and alcohol use disorders, and collaboration with various clinicians in team case conferences
Fellows will gain a wealth of expertise in the addiction medicine field. They will receive a diploma in completion of the Addiction Medicine Fellowship, and be eligible to sit for the American Board of Addiction Medicine certification.
Educational sessions are held weekly, and treatment team conferences several times per week where the faculty and resident interact directly on patient care.
