Division of Developmental Medicine | Addiction Medicine Fellowship

The Pediatric Addiction Medicine Fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital, will focuses on providing clinicians with the skills needed to provide clinical services and engage in research related to prevention and treatment of substance use disorders in children and adolescents, with an emphasis on individuals vulnerable to health disparity by virtue of poverty, culture, age, gender, disability or chronic illness. The first fellowship of its kind in the country, this one-year clinical fellowship includes training experiences guided by the multi-disciplinary faculty in the Adolescent Substance Abuse Program (ASAP) within the Division of Developmental Medicine at BCH, allowing fellows to gain clinical skills and knowledge regarding adolescent substance use, through the lens of developmental-behavioral pediatrics. Fellows will have the opportunity to complete clinical rotations in a variety of settings, including inpatient and outpatient substance use treatment, adolescent medicine, toxicology, pain management, neonatology, addiction in pregnancy, pediatric consultation.
