The UCI School of Medicine Train New Trainers (TNT) Primary Care Training and Education in Addiction Medicine (PC-TEAM) Fellowship is a year-long clinical education certificate program for primary care and ER-oriented clinicians interested in advanced SUD training and opioid management.

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.

The primary goal of the TNT PC-TEAM fellowship is to provide mentorship and teaching skills in the area of addiction medicine. Trainees will learn in both small and large group settings, with a focus on how to teach information and skills learned to providers in their region. The target audiences for the program are MDs, DOs, NPs and PAs.

Note that training in this Fellowship takes place largely outside of normal clinic hours and is not a traditional or Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-approved fellowship.
