Welcome to the University of New Mexico's Department of Psychiatry's Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship Webpage. We are delighted that you have an interest in this vital area. We have provided training in addiction psychiatry since 2006.
Our fellowship provides a broad and diverse training in the rich multicultural setting of New Mexico. It is our goal to improve the emotional and physical health of all New Mexicans by focusing on the devastating effects of addictive disorders.
Our fellows receive extensive training in the screening, evaluation and treatment of the addictive disorders. We have a talented and skilled faculty, who are dedicated to education, research and clinical pursuits in the addictions. Fellows receive the bulk of their training at the following sites: University Psychiatric Center, Addiction and Substance Abuse Programs (ASAP), Albuquerque Veteran's Administration Hospital, Children's Psychiatric Hospital and the Truman Street Clinic.
In addition the fellowship includes opportunities and training in the rural and multicultural populations of New Mexico. New Mexico has a large Hispanic and Native American population with unique treatment needs. All this adds to great richness and diversity of the training experience.
We welcome your interest in our fellowship and invite you to contact us if you have any questions. We are on a great venture to heal individuals who have been wounded by addictive disorders. Please join us in this important quest.
