The Addiction Medicine Fellowship (AMF) Program provides grants to expand the number of fellows at accredited Addiction Medicine Fellowship and Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship programs trained as addiction medicine specialists who work in underserved, community-based settings that integrate primary care with mental health disorders and substance use disorder (SUD) prevention and treatment services.

Program objectives are:

  • Increase the number of board certified addiction medicine or addiction psychiatry sub-specialists produced per program annually by providing stipends for new addiction medicine or addiction psychiatry fellowship slots and additional program support to sponsoring institutions
  • Collaborate and establish formal relationships with underserved, community-based settings to provide training of AMF Program fellows at these sites
  • Develop or enhance training for faculty from collaborating programs to create an infrastructure of skills and expertise that supports training fellows to provide opioid use disorder (OUD) and other SUD prevention, treatment and recovery services on integrated, interprofessional teams

Priorities include:

  • Combating the opioid crisis and mental health disorders
  • Transforming the workforce by targeting the need
  • Expanding telehealth services

Eligible applicants include sponsoring institutions of accredited addiction medicine fellowship programs or accredited addiction psychiatry fellowship programs, or a consortium consisting of at least one teaching health center and one sponsoring institution of an addiction medicine or addiction psychiatry fellowship program.
