The Department of Psychiatry at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship is a full-time, one-year PGY-5 position based at DHMC and the Veterans' Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) of White River Junction, VT. We offer comprehensive training in addiction psychiatry that includes clinical experiences and didactic education in all aspects of addiction. We offer rotations in residential, intensive outpatient, and regular outpatient levels of care. Fellows work with patients on the residential care units at the VA Medical Center, consult-liaison services of both academic medical centers and New Hampshire Hospital, specialty clinics, community-based programs, and a federally licensed opioid treatment centers (methadone center). Fellows gain experience working on multidisciplinary teams and with patients in group and individual settings.
The Addiction Fellowship program includes assessment and treatment of dual diagnosis patients, multiple case conferences, psychopharmacology medical clinics, and didactic seminars on all major aspects of addiction.
The program includes a scholarly requirement, as well as numerous opportunities to be involved in the research of addiction. Patients seen in the program cover a range of socioeconomic diversity. There is also substantial opportunity to teach psychiatric residents and Dartmouth medical students.
The program treats patients with addiction disorders through the Intensive Outpatient Program at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC), patients in residential rehabilitation at the VA Medical Center (VAMC), Buprenorphine Clinics at both facilities, as well as inpatients treated for alcohol withdrawal in both institutions.
