Addiction Medicine Fellowship

Community Health Network offers a one-year* fellowship for physicians interested in pursuing a career as an addiction medicine physician. Any physician who has graduated from an ACGME accredited residency is eligible to apply. Graduates will have a unique skillset in the management of substance use disorders and common comorbid conditions positioning them to be an ideal candidate for a variety of employment opportunities. The fellowship will provide the experience needed to meet the credentialing and clinical qualifications that many inpatient, residential, and outpatient addiction treatment programs require.

Program Overview

Our fellowship program is set in Indianapolis, a large metropolitan area with a broad array of training locations including inpatient addiction treatment in a psychiatric setting, outpatient family and psychiatric MAT programs, exposure to MAT in pregnancy, and adolescent treatment. The fellowship aims to train physicians to function as exemplary clinicians, teachers, and managers of healthcare resources. Our objective is for our graduates to become competent and ethical professionals possessing sound clinical judgment, requisite skills, and a high order of knowledge about the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of all addiction medicine disorders and common co-occurring illnesses. Our fellows are expected to provide patient care that is compassionate, appropriate and effective for both the treatment of health problems and the promotion of health.

Upon completion of training, our fellows will consistently demonstrate sufficient competence in rendering effective professional care to patients without direct supervision. Through clinical and educational experiences, the fellowship training program provides a solid educational background which will adequately prepare fellows for the addiction medicine certification examination by the American Board of Preventative Medicine. Our graduates are also expected to have a keen awareness of their own strengths and limitations and recognize the necessity for a commitment to lifelong self-evaluation, practice based learning and professional development.

*Particularly exceptional candidates will be considered for completion of the fellowship on a part-time basis over two years. Please inquire for further details and requirements.
