The Medical College of Wisconsin offers a one-year ACGME-accredited Addiction Psychiatry fellowship program designed to develop expertise in all aspects of addiction psychiatry. Clinical training is based at the Clement J. Zablocki Veteran's Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) in Milwaukee. Advanced training occurs at the VA Medical Center on the adult inpatient unit and the Consultation-Liaison service for patients with substance use disorders and/or withdrawal syn­dromes. Training also takes place in the Outpatient Opioid Ago­nist Treatment clinic for treatment of patients with co-occurring mental health issues and addiction issues. 

Additional rotation sites include the Dewey Center at Aurora Hospital; a private hospital in Milwaukee with a full range of services in the treatment of substance use disorders, including residential treatment and services for adolescents and the Norris Center of the Student Health Services of the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, where fellows learn to treat col­lege and graduate students with substance use disorders.

Our faculty are recognized nationally and internationally for their scholarly work as leaders in their field.  Fellows are strongly en­couraged to avail themselves of the many opportunities to work with established faculty investigators.  During elective time, fel­lows are provided with excellent “hands-on” experience in experi­mental design, data collection, analysis, critical thinking and writ­ing. Fellows are required to work on a scholarly project, with mentoring from the program director, which is presented at the end of the year at the Departmental Grand Rounds.

Dedicated time is set aside for weekly didactics and mentorship. The fellowship does not require any overnight call or weekend clinical duties. We number among our faculty, individuals recognized nationally and internationally for their research and scholarship as leaders in their field.
