Addiction Medicine Fellowship

Addiction Medicine Fellowship

Now accepting applications through ERAS.

The Addiction Medicine fellowship at the University of Nebraska Medical Center is housed in the Department of Family Medicine Department. As one of only a handful of fellowships in the upper Midwest, the UNMC Addiction Medicine Fellowship is poised to provide a one-year comprehensive training.

Addiction Medicine is a specialty that involves treating patients across all age ranges, from childhood through care of geriatric patients. Physicians in this specialty work with all spectrums of substance use, from prevention to treatment and recovery. Addiction Medicine physicians also work with all substances- alcohol, tobacco, prescription medications and illicit substances.

Our fellows train in both inpatient and outpatient settings. The inpatient experiences include an Addiction Psychiatry Consult Liaison service at our University Hospital. The fellows also rotate in a full continuum treatment center that provides hospital-based withdrawal management through all levels of care down to outpatient care. Out outpatient rotations involve addiction medicine, addiction psychiatry including a true co-occurring intensive outpatient clinic, office based opioid treatment, and an adolescent outpatient clinic.
