One 1-Year Fellowship Available
Program Period: July 1, 2007, - June 30, 2008
Emory University’s Addiction Psychiatry Residency Program currently has one opening available for the 2007-2008 program. Residents will train at the Atlanta VA Medical Center and affiliated sites. Residents in our program receive direct supervision in evaluation and treatment of men and women of different ages, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds with addictions to all major classes of addicting substances. Residents receive supervised training in performing patient evaluations, managing detoxification and rehabilitation, and in treating psychiatric comorbidities. They participate in clinical supervision and formal didactic training of general psychiatry residents and medical students. Addiction Psychiatry residents also follow outpatients for individual psychotherapy and medication management.
We have assembled outstanding faculty to provide a comprehensive didactics experience, and lectures address neurobiology, diagnosis and treatment of all major classes of addicting substances, pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy, and related topics including public policy, ethics, and medications development. Emphasis is placed on those areas covered by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology examination and requirements of the ACGME. One day per week is protected time to allow for scholarly activity and research pursuits.
