Addiction Medicine Track Structure

Internal medicine, med-peds, or med-psych residents apply for entrance to the track at the end of their intern year, with scheduled rotations and curricula starting in their PGY-2 or PGY-3 year. All residents in the addiction medicine track are scheduled for two key clinical experiences:

  • Longitudinal Subspecialty Clinic: Residents are scheduled for a weekly clinic session at the UK First Bridge Clinic, allowing for graduated responsibility and independence in managing patients with opioid use disorder. 
  • Inpatient Addiction Medicine Consultation: Residents rotate on the UK Addiction Consult and Education Service (ACES) — a month-long experience coupling exposure to incredible patient complexity and 1:1 clinical coaching.
