Program Description

The Stanford Addiction Medicine Program (SAMP) is a one-year, advanced fellowship opportunity in addiction medicine, open to physicians who have completed an ACGME-accredited residency in any clinical specialty. The SAMP provides state-of-the-art training in the treatment of patients with addiction, including detoxification, pharmacotherapy for addiction, abstinence-based recovery models, harm-reduction recovery models, motivational interviewing, 12-Step facilitation, consultation for medical and psychiatric hospital services, and psychosocial approaches to the treatment of patients with addiction and pain. The program is tailored to the individual background and interests of the applicant, and includes but is not limited to experiences in the following settings: Stanford Inpatient Psychiatry, Stanford Outpatient Dual Diagnosis/Addiction Clinic, Stanford Consult-Liason Psychiatry, Stanford Pain Clinic, Stanford Family Medicine Clinic, Kaiser Santa Clara Chemical Dependency and Rehabilitation Program, Menlo Park and Palo Alto Veterans Administration Hospital Programs for Addiction, and scholarly/research collaborations. Our goal is to train physicians in all aspects of treating patients with substance use disorders, behavioral addictions, and co-occurring psychiatric and medical disorders. We also hope to promote future leaders in the field of Addiction Medicine.
