Research Opportunities

Cooper University Health Care Addiction Medicine Fellows participate in monthly addiction medicine research meetings to review the current status of ongoing projects as well as discuss possible new endeavors. Outside of the required individual quality improvement (QI) project, fellows have the opportunity to participate in a multitude of research projects currently in progress at Cooper University Health Care and Cooper Medical School of Rowan University (CMSRU). Fellows also have the opportunity to develop their own research projects if desired. Matthew Salzman, MD serves as Research Director at the Cooper Center for Healing and oversees fellow participation in any research project along with support from other Center for Healing clinical faculty.

Our fellows and Cooper University Health Care Center for Healing clinical faculty and interdisciplinary clinical and research team members collaborate on innovative studies and other work published in leading academic medical journals.
