Addiction Medicine is in the NRMP Medicine and Pediatric Specialties Match for positions starting in 2023 (Match opens August 24 and Match Day is November 30). At least 90% of fellowships are participating.
Fellowships are 1-year and open to physicians of all specialties who have completed a residency accredited by ACGME, AOA, RCPSC or CFPC. Fellowships are typically affiliated with residencies in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Psychiatry or another specialty, but that affiliation does not determine candidate eligibility. Programs emphasize interdisciplinary training and have faculty from multiple specialties.

The applicant must complete an ACGME or AOA accredited residency in one of the following fields: anesthesiology, emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine, neurology, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, psychiatry, and surgery. For more information about qualifying primary specialty certificates, please visit ABMS.

The applicant must also be board certified or board eligible in their primary discipline and qualify to obtain an Illinois Medical License and DEA before starting the fellowship.

Our Addiction Medicine Fellowship is committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment where differences are valued and respected. Women, minorities underrepresented in medicine (URIM), individuals with a disability, veterans, and LGBTQ individuals are encouraged to apply.

We will begin reviewing and screening application files as soon as they are completed and offering interviews in late August. If you receive an invitation to interview, please reply as soon as possible to arrange an interview date since the days can fill quickly
