Memorial Hermann Cameron Addiction Medicine Fellowship 

The Memorial Hermann Prevention & Recovery Center (PaRC) Cameron Addiction Medicine Fellowship is a hands-on one-year program that offers the qualified physician candidate a comprehensive range of training experiences in the treatment of alcohol and substance use disorders, addiction related to chronic pain, and mental health crisis management.

The Fellow will be involved in the patient process from initial assessment to discharge and all levels of care, including medically supervised detox, residential treatment, partial hospitalization and outpatient for ages 13 and up. In addition, the Fellow will have clinical rotations in our specialty programs: Pain Recovery, Professionals & Executives, Young Adult and Family.

The Fellow will have the unique opportunity of working alongside our Psych Response Team case managers at the Memorial Hermann Mental Health Crisis Clinics and Memorial Hermann Health System Emergency departments.

Rotations consist of 11 one-month blocks allowing the Fellow to work clinically in the field of addiction medicine. The Fellow is supervised by affiliated board-certified addiction medicine physicians, and board-certified physicians and psychiatrists in addition to nurses, licensed chemical dependency counselors (LCDC), licensed professional counselors (LPC), licensed clinical social workers (LCSW) and licensed Master Social Workers (LMSW).

The goal of the Fellowship is to provide each graduate with a command of the clinical skills and knowledge needed to practice in the field of addiction medicine and to prepare the Fellow for the American Board of Addiction Medicine (ABAM) certification exam.
