The UIC Integrated Substance Use Disorder in Primary Care Fellowship is a year-long, full-time, salaried fellowship (beginning August 15th, 2023) will provide the needed training to develop Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) &/or Advanced Practice Nurses (APNs) into:
-Autonomous clinician educators who possess in-depth therapeutic knowledge in caring for people with substance use disorders;
-Independent practitioners and scholars that can have high impact endeavors in a variety of primary care and teaching environments;
-Superior candidates for their desired career goals especially in primary/care substance use disorder care.
This grant is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration and is designed to provide broad exposure to variety of primary care situations with a focus on people who also have a substance use disorder. Assessment will be continual, multidisciplinary, and refined to keep pace with the fellows’ individual needs, growth, and career goals.
Fellows will provide clinical services in several settings, including UIC’s Community Outreach Intervention Program, UI Health Mile Square Federally Qualified Health Centers, and the Night Ministry, a local non-profit organization that provides needed services to unhoused communities and those experiencing poverty. Additionally, fellows will also participate in a variety of weekly interprofessional educational settings, including UIC’s College of Pharmacy, Echo 360, and other webinars and seminars engaging in group discussions and case presentations. The fellowship will culminate in a scholarly project to be submitted to an evidence-based regional or national conference.
