Section on Tobacco, Alcohol & Drug Use Education
NYU Langone’s Section on Tobacco, Alcohol, and Drug Use offers training and educational opportunities for students interested in a research or clinical career in substance use disorders and addiction. We offer a range of programs for medical graduates, graduate students, and undergraduates.
Fellowship in Addiction Medicine
Our one-year fellowship trains medical graduates for a career in addiction medicine. Upon completion, fellows are prepared to take the American Board of Addiction Medicine certification exam. Building on NYU School of Medicine’s nationally recognized fellowship in addiction psychiatry, our fellowship in addiction medicine includes extensive medical practice, training in research methods through the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, and the opportunity to conduct research with NYU Langone faculty on trials funded by the National Institutes of Health.
As a fellow, you practice at an addiction medicine clinic in a primary care setting at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue and work in detoxification, dual diagnosis, consultation and liaison psychiatry, emergency care, pain medicine, methadone maintenance, and intensive outpatient treatment programs.
Training in Substance Use Disorder Research
In the Substance Abuse Research Education and Training program, students learn about a variety of addiction-related topics and core concepts of clinical research, and conduct research with a faculty mentor. The program’s modular, web-based curriculum is free and can be accessed by anyone. The full training program, however, including the mentored research project, is only open to students at NYU School of Medicine, NYU College of Dentistry, NYU Rory Myers College of Nursing, NYU Silver School of Social Work, and NYU College of Global Public Health.
Internship in Health Services Research and Smoking Cessation
The Program on Applied Health Services Research and Smoking Cessation Intervention internship is open to current and recent undergraduate and master’s students. Interns assist with research and other projects at NYU Langone locations and the VA NY Harbor Healthcare System.
