The Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) one-year, ACGME-accredited Clinical Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship enables two psychiatrists each academic year to develop clinical addiction psychiatry practice knowledge and skills, present and write scholarly papers and teach junior trainees.
We expect graduates of our program to become leaders in addiction psychiatry. To this end, we offer intensive training in diverse clinical and investigative settings, an extensive curriculum of formal didactics, an administrative/leadership experience, expert faculty supervision, scholarly presentation, paper publication and experience educating psychiatry residents and medical students.
The Program’s curriculum will comprise of:
Unique to WCM’s program will be the focus on the stigma of addiction, youth substance use prevention efforts and treatment, and enhanced exposure to individuals in recovery. Fellows will accomplish this through their clinical and research work, but also through collaborations with individuals and organizations outside of Weill Cornell, such as 12-step groups and treatment centers around the New York City area. Through this curriculum and close mentorship, Weill Cornell’s Addiction Psychiatry Fellows will gain and perfect new skills as they gradually transition into independent clinicians.
Dr. Jonathan Avery would like to thank Robin Kellner and John Sicher for their support of the fellowship. Read more about their story.
