Addiction Medicine/Research Fellowship Wins Accreditation

Published May 2011

The Addiction Medicine/Research Fellowship of the department of psychiatry and behavioral neuroscience’s Center for Treatment, Research and Education in Addictive Disorders (CeTREAD) has been accredited for three years by the American Board of Addiction Medicine (ABAM) Foundation, effective July 1, 2011. The Fellowship is directed by Shannon Miller, MD. Among U.S. Addiction Medicine fellowships, only 10 were selected to be the first-ever accredited programs in U.S. history—providing the only training pathway for board certification in Addiction Medicine. These 10 programs are now on a path toward Accrediation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accreditation, as well as American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) inclusion of Addiction Medicine as a formal specialty.

Additionally, CeTREAD’s ACGME-accredited Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship, under the leadership of Miller and Show Lin, MD, was surveyed by the ACGME and given a five-year accreditation. The department of psychiatry and behavioral neuroscience is one of a select few departments in the U.S. to have both ACGME-accredited and ABAM-accredited addiction specialty fellowships.  Interested candidates should contact Madelyn Milner at
