Welcome from the Program Director

Thank you for your interest in the Cooper University Health Care Addiction Medicine Fellowship Program. Our Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited program is one year in length and currently accepts four fellows per year.

Our Addiction Medicine Fellowship Program was developed to give fellows a broad range of experiences in both the outpatient and inpatient treatment settings over the course of their training. While majority of the training occurs at the main campus of Cooper University Health Care in Camden, New Jersey, fellows also have the opportunity to rotate through multiple other locations including both suburban and rural settings.

Our addiction medicine faculty physicians are a diversely trained group from multiple medical specialties including internal medicine, family medicine, psychiatry, emergency medicine, and toxicology. All faculty hold academic appointments at Cooper Medical School of Rowan University (CMSRU) and are actively involved in medical student education programs including the development of a longitudinal substance use disorder (SUD) curriculum. The program includes protected didactic time where we will review and cover essential topics in addiction medicine.

To provide evidence-based and compassionate care to our patients, our Cooper University Health Care Division of Addiction Medicine, Center for Healing functions as an interdisciplinary team that includes behavioral health clinicians, nurses, and pharmacists. We welcome your interest in becoming part of this team!
