Interprofessional Advanced Fellowship in Addiction Treatment

The VA Interprofessional Advanced Fellowship in Addiction Treatment (IAFAT) provides two years of post-residency, post-doctoral research, education, and clinical learning opportunities to eligible physicians and associated health professionals at 7 VA Medical Centers across the Nation. Fellows spend 75 percent of their time in research and education and 25 percent in clinical care at selected VA sites. Mentors of national stature provide guidance to fellows in rich learning environments. Graduates are expected to be role models in leading, developing, conducting, and evaluating innovative research, education, and clinical care in health issues pertaining to Addiction Treatment.
