Description

    The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is an international centre of excellence in clinical treatment, research, education and training in Addiction Medicine. Clinical services span a continuum of care that includes both the 100 Stokes Street (outpatient)and the 60 White Squirrel Way (inpatient) sites. Specialised addiction trainingin the areas of nicotine, alcohol, opioid and benzodiazepine dependence treatment, medication management including methadone and buprenorphine maintenance, counselling, withdrawal management, and concurrent disorders is available. Off-site rotations include inpatient consultations in a general hospital as well as maternal and neonatal care. Selective rotations are offered in pain and addiction, adolescent medicine, treatment of health professionals, and clinical research, among others.

    Our clinical fellowship is an opportunity for physicians to develop clinical skills in treating substance use disorders. Our fellows are prepared to act as independent experts in Addiction Medicine or to include it within the practice of their primary speciality. Our faculty are leaders in the field of Addiction Medicine and our goal is to mentor our colleagues to advance the field of Addiction Medicine. The fellow also has the option of participating in the academic programs of the DFCM (e.g. Academic Fellowship, Masters, Leadershiptraining) on a part-time basis and will have many opportunities to teach other trainees during the fellowship. The fellow may also arrange a weekly "half-day back" in their primary speciality.
