Exclusive learning opportunity for adolescent substance use treatment

Virtual Pediatric Rotations at Boston Children's Hospital Pediatric Addiction Medicine Fellowship

The Boston Children’s Hospital Pediatric Addiction Medicine Fellowship is taking applications from fellows in other addiction medicine programs (deadline January 6, 2023) for one-week virtual learning experiences in the first half of 2023 (January-May).

Because of the particular challenges posed by the cognitive and developmental changes that mark adolescence, treatment for adolescent substance use requires a distinctive approach that recognizes and respects adolescents’ desire for independence while understanding the special vulnerabilities of this period of life.

The Pediatric Addiction Medicine Rotation at Boston Children’s Hospital provides fellows in addiction medicine a one-week training experience that focuses on evaluation and treatment for adolescents and young adults with substance use problems and disorders.

Over the course of the week, the fellow will be provided with:

  • 16 hours of clinical observation of telehealth in the Adolescent Substance Use and Addiction Program (ASAP), including time spent with pediatricians, social workers, and psychiatrists,
  • an opportunity to attend virtual research and service delivery meetings,
  • an opportunity to access materials from research and clinical didactics during and after rotation, and
  • participate in ASAP virtual clinical rounds.

Interested fellows should discuss with their program directors before submitting applications here: Pediatric Addiction Medicine Virtual Observation at Boston Children’s Hospital.
