Addiction Medicine Fellowship

HonorHealth/Community Bridges Integrated Addiction Medicine Fellowship

Our Addiction Medicine Fellowship was the first program to receive accreditation in the state of Arizona and one of the first programs to receive ACGME accreditation in the country. The addiction medicine program is a fellowship under the HonorHealth Family Medicine Residency Program.

The program provides training in the evaluation, treatment, research, and teaching of substance use disorders. The program offers training at a variety of sites including community based clinics, hospital consults, as well as specialty rotations in adolescent addictions and addiction free pain management.


Applications for 2021 season will be accepted through ERAS.
