The BCCSU Addiction Medicine Fellowship is a partnership between the BC Centre on Substance Use, St. Paul’s Foundation, St. Paul’s Hospital, 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 positions in medicine, nursing, nurse practitioner, social work, and research. The program is a 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.
