Marshall University is pleased to offer fellowship training in addiction medicine for family doctors wishing to obtain board certification in addiction medicine through the American Board of Preventive Medicine. The program is part of the Division of Addiction Sciences at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.

The program is based in Huntington, West Virginia, a community that has developed a comprehensive response to severe addiction issues affecting the Appalachian region. The program provides an excellent opportunity for primary care physicians to become involved in that response, and in doing so, develop expertise in the full range of conditions related to addictive behavior and strategies to address the medical, behavioral and social factors related to the problem.

This fellowship is a one-year program with both inpatient and outpatient experiences. There is time to focus on special populations and to engage in valuable research related to addiction.

In order to qualify for the fellowship, the applicant must have completed a residency in Family Medicine.
