Fellowship Departmental Affiliation:
Because addiction medicine is a multispecialty subspecialty, fellowships are affiliated with various departments/residencies. While most are affiliated with family medicine, internal medicine or psychiatry, some are affiliated with emergency medicine or pediatrics. The degree of the affiliation varies – some program directors are from a different specialty than the host department (PD specialty is shown when you click on a fellowship).

Some programs may have specific eligibility criteria or preferences, but overall, the distinguishing feature of addiction medicine fellowships is that they are open to physicians of all specialties. Of note – although a number of fellowships are based in Psychiatry departments, most of their fellows have been non-psychiatrists.
