What is the program?

The AMF Program will expand the number of fellows at accredited AMF and Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship (APF) programs trained as addiction medicine specialists who work in underserved, community-based settings that integrate primary care with mental health disorder and substance use disorder (SUD) prevention and treatment services.

The Addiction Medicine Program encompasses both psychiatry and an addiction subspecialty for primary care doctors.

Are you eligible?

Eligible applicants include U.S. based sponsoring institutions of accredited addiction medicine or accredited addiction psychiatry fellowship programs, or a consortium consisting of at least one domestic teaching health center and one domestic addiction medicine or addiction psychiatry fellowship program.

The sponsoring institution of addiction medicine or addiction psychiatry fellowship programs must be accredited by ACGME or, until 2021, by ACAAM.

Programs accredited by the ACAAM must demonstrate their ability to become ACGME accredited by 2021, when all program graduates must be from ACGME-accredited programs in order to be eligible for board certification.

ACAAM-accredited programs not actively seeking ACGME accreditation will not be eligible for the AMF Program after 2021 as program graduates from ACAAM-accredited programs will not be eligible for addiction medicine certification through the American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM), a member board of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS).
