Posted by on Monday, January 6, 2020 in Uncategorized .

Through the generous funding of the Scaife Family Foundation, the Institute for Research, Education and Training in Addictions (IRETA) is able to conduct the Advanced Medical Student Fellowship program. The program offers students training in the field of addiction services incomparable to any they may have encountered in their prior medical school education.

Students who are accepted into the program participate in an intense learning experience. Their schedules include:

  • Lectures
  • A variety of site visits
  • Patient contact
  • Group session with clients
  • Rounds with resident physicians
  • Opportunity to present what the students have learned

The Scaife program is offered in two three-week sessions.

Session 1: June 8 – 26, 2020
Session 2: July 6 – 24, 2020

Participants will receive a $150 per week stipend and a $200 transportation allowance for a total of $650 for the three weeks. Rooms with access to refrigerators and microwaves and some meals are also provided.
