Fellows will learn how to complete evidence-based substance use screening in busy primary care or other general medical settings. TNT PC-TEAM fellows will also be trained to effectively prevent, diagnose, and treat commonly encountered substance use and pain-related disorders (e.g., opioids, alcohol, stimulants, and benzodiazepines). Most importantly, graduates will be thoroughly trained in SUD and, as TNT PC-TEAM Champions, know how to train other providers.
