The fellow will have a weekly MAT (Medication Assisted Treatment) clinic and a weekly continuity clinic in the area of his/her specialty so that they can maintain their clinical skills acquired during their residency.
There will be a half day a week dedicated to didactics where all topics related to addiction medicine will be covered. We will tap into local, regional and national expertise in the delivery of these.
We look for fellows who enjoy being in an academic environment considering that the fellow will be engaged in teaching residents, medical students, and community attendings through rounds, clinic precepting, and lecturing. Our fellow will also participate as an expert panel member in the University of Idaho’s ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) program which serves the state of Idaho and provides education and mentoring related to substance use disorders and pain management.
The fellow will also be given a month where four days a week will be dedicated to producing a journal article or poster presentation in addiction medicine.
We will be funding and sending our fellow to the American Society of Addiction Medicine Annual Conference and a comprehensive addiction medicine board review class.
