Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship

Welcome to MAHEC's Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship!

Welcome to our program! As the only addiction psychiatry fellowship in the state of North Carolina, we are committed to training clinical psychiatrists in becoming proficient in preventing, recognizing and treating addictive disorders. In particular, we strive to provide graduates with a strong background in both knowledge and experience in treating patients with comorbid mental health and addictive disease.

We strive to provide fellows with a high level of didactic training along with supervision of their patient care by experts in this field of addiction psychiatry and medicine. These ongoing efforts will remain in place to graduate well-trained leaders in the field of addiction psychiatry with a firm foundation in the current evidence of care delivered both equitably and with compassion for those suffering from the disease of addiction.

Our fellowship, located in beautiful Asheville NC, will give the fellow an opportunity to work with nationally recognized faculty in addiction psychiatry and medicine. There is an emphasis on working with a diverse rural population. The fellow will have the opportunity to rotate through residential, inpatient, and outpatient settings. This is an excellent opportunity for an individual that is looking for an intensive, individualized, hands-on program with a strong series of didactic offerings. There will also be opportunities to participate in a clinical research project.

We invite you to explore our program, contact us with any questions, and submit your application for consideration.
