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 program offers training at a variety of sites including community-based clinics, hospital consults, as well as specialty rotations in addiction free pain management and physician health.


Applications will be accepted through ERAS.

The HonorHealth Addiction Medicine Program uses the J-1 Visa program sponsored by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). HonorHealth does not sponsor H1-B visas for graduates of international medical schools. Graduates of Canadian medical schools must also use the J-1 program. Incoming J-1 visa fellows are required to obtain their J-1 visas before their training.
