Program Director’s Welcome

We appreciate your interest in our program and look forward to showing you what makes us so proud of the University of Miami/Jackson Health System Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship Program.

Jackson Memorial Hospital is a large, university-affiliated county hospital and is the perfect sponsor for your addiction psychiatry training. Fellows gain outstanding experience in the management of a variety of patient populations, in a culturally informed, evidenced-based and patient-centered care approach.

Our program provides specialized training that will include supervised clinical responsibilities in diverse settings and in highly diverse populations, ranging from end-stage addictive disorders and alcoholism, to highly complex “triple diagnosis” patients. Clinical services can include a variance of inpatient, medically managed detoxification units, to consultation services in acute medical settings; comprehensive outpatient programs (addiction and dual diagnosis); outpatient, medication-assisted opioid-maintenance therapy; specialized outpatient integrated care for HIV-psychiatric and addiction comorbidity and multidisciplinary pain management clinics.

Fellow(s) are also actively engaged in teaching activities for medical students and junior psychiatry residents, as well as through community outreach.

There are unique opportunities for research training, made available through established research groups with a range of expertise from basic to translational. Intervention research opportunities are also available within the department and across the university, along with a multidisciplinary research mentorship. Additionally, formal course training is offered through the UM Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine “Research Training Boot Camp.”

Trainees who have graduated from the Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship Program have obtained highly coveted employment at academic institutions, veterans administration hospitals and private practices. Many have started their employment as medical directors of addiction or dual-diagnosis services.

The surroundings in which you train are also an important aspect of selecting a residency program, and Miami is a wonderful place both to live and work. Situated in one of the world’s premier destinations, we invite you to come see for yourself why patients, faculty and students from across the country, and world, are drawn to the UM/Jackson Health System.
