About Us

The Addiction Medicine Fellowship at the University of Washington is a one-year program that strives to provide education in evidence-based patient care and create a supportive and comprehensive learning environment that will prepare trainees for a variety of experiences in Addiction Medicine.

Our inaugural year began July 1, 2020.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to establish and support a new cadre of addiction medicine doctors from diverse perspectives who provide compassionate, patient-centered, and effective treatment for individuals with substance use disorders. Our vision is to reduce mortality and morbidity from substance use disorders throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond while also eliminating the stigmatization of individuals with addiction. Our program focus will be to educate physicians broadly in the skills, knowledge, and attitudes essential to Addiction Medicine, with a focus on the integration of addiction treatment into primary care practice, care of underserved communities, and addiction treatment continuity during transitions of care from the inpatient to outpatient setting.
