The BCCSU Addiction Medicine Fellowship is a partnership between the BC Centre on Substance Use, St. Paul’s Foundation, St. Paul’s Hospital, the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, and the Division of AIDS at the University of British Columbia (UBC). It has been made possible by a $3 million donation in 2012 to the St. Paul’s Foundation and the UBC Division of AIDS by Goldcorp, Inc.
The Addiction Medicine Fellowship program includes eight positions in medicine as well as four positions in the nursing stream and two positions in the social work stream. The program is a new multidisciplinary fellowship that strives for excellence in clinical training, scholarship, research, and advocacy and includes specialty training in inpatient and outpatient addiction management, as well as related concurrent disorders training. It prepares Fellows to work as experts in the field of addiction medicine and take leadership roles in clinical, academic, and/or research settings.
