Robyn JordanThe Addiction Medicine Fellowship at the University of North Carolina offers a wide array of training opportunities in addiction medicine with the goal of teaching fellows about systems of care and collaborating across disciplines and professions.  The fellows will work with physicians in Family Medicine, Anesthesia, Psychiatry, Pediatrics, OB/GYN and Preventive Medicine, while also working alongside Peer Support Specialists, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Psychologists and Case Managers.  The fellows will be offered a unique experience to co-train with Nurse Practitioners who are receiving a certification in Addiction Medicine, creating an effective collaboration between the Addiction Medicine fellow and the NP fellow.

Some of the training opportunities include working on a Medically Supervised Detox Unit, Inpatient Pain Service, and an Outpatient Pain clinic.  The fellows will spend several weeks training in the world-renowned Horizons program (a substance abuse residential and outpatient program for pregnant women and parenting women, led by Hendree Jones, PhD).  The fellows will also have opportunity to participate in clinical research programs, one of which is the UNC Project ECHO for MAT.  This project is a statewide effort to improve addiction treatment across North Carolina.

This program is designed to train Addiction Medicine fellows to be competent in systems of care and to understand their role in a team-based model.  Fellows will be well prepared for the Addiction Medicine Certification Exam as well as a career as an Addiction Medicine Specialist.
