Research Program Evaluation Training About Us

MD Fellows Research Training

This post-residency full-time fellowship seeks to train physicians in the psychiatric, medical, and surgical specialties in health services research on the links between addictions, mental health and physical health concerns.

  • Train fellows in the theories and methods of behavioral health services research, focusing on interventions for disadvantaged populations seen in safety net medical settings, through courses, seminars, and mentored exposure to research in progress, including an MPH degree in Health Services.
  • Provide fellows with mentored research experiences that incorporate the perspective of safety net patients, providers and administrators so that interventions can be adapted and translated to fit the unique safety net ecology.
  • Offer fellows administrative, policy, and clinical training opportunities in safety net facilities that underscore the organizational, financial, and policy barriers to delivering care as well as the challenges to disseminating, implementing, and sustaining new health care strategies.
