Johns Hopkins University Addiction Medicine Fellowship

The Johns Hopkins University Addiction Medicine Fellowship serves to train the next generation of leaders in addiction medicine by preparing trainees for addiction medicine certification and clinical and academic leadership in the field.

The fellowship program will provide a strong foundation in the components of prevention, identification and treatment of substance use disorders and co-occurring conditions though a variety of supervised clinical experiences in a wide range of inpatient and outpatient settings, including longitudinal experience in caring for patients with addiction in a primary care setting. Fellows work with diverse faculty with backgrounds in internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology and psychiatry.

Following completion of training, each fellow will be able to:

  • Provide patient care that is compassionate, appropriate, and effective for the promotion of health for individuals with substance use disorders
  • Apply knowledge in the biomedical, clinical, epidemiological, social and behavioral sciences to their care of patients
  • Pursue a career focused on clinical care, research, teaching, or health care leadership

For more information about the fellowship, please contact program coordinator Amy Ziemski.

We are pleased to announce that our program now participates in ERAS for applications.
