Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship
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.
Department of Psychiatry Faculty includes psychiatrists who are board certified in addiction psychiatry, as well as nationally known experts in the treatment of dually and chronically diagnosed psychiatric and addictive disorders.
Hospital clinical experience is split between Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Hospital in White River Junction, VT, and New Hampshire Hospital.
In an effort to facilitate social distancing during the current COVID-19 pandemic, Dartmouth-Hitchcock and the VA Medical Center are taking extra precautions in order to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. The presence of COVID-19 has brought us to reevaluate how we currently run our program and how we can use the experience gained from this time to enhance the fellowship experience in 2021. At Dartmouth-Hitchcock our employees are working offsite, and at our VA site we are offering remote visits for patients. We are all hoping for a quick resolution, but our goal still remains for our fellows to receive the proper training through their fellowship experience with us.
