Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship

We offer a one-year clinical fellowship in Addiction Psychiatry. This is a unique opportunity for fellows to develop clinical skills in working with those suffering from substance use disorders and comorbid medical and psychiatric conditions. The primary training sites are the William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital and NewStart, a community-based inpatient and outpatient drug and alcohol treatment program. Fellows also rotate at ARC Community Services, Inc. (women), Connections Counseling (young adults), Jesse Brown VA Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois (methadone clinic), Rogers Memorial Hospital (partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient), Tellurian (acute detoxification), and University Health Services (college students).  

The fellowship is open to 1-2 qualified candidates per year. Candidates must have completed an ACGME-certified psychiatry residency prior to entering the fellowship. For more information, please contact the Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship Program Director, Dr. Dean Krahn, and the Program Coordinator, Chelsea Wimmer.  

For fellows interested in research: We have worked together with other researchers on the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s campus to create a combined clinical and a research fellowship, each component of which is distributed over two years.
