DEADLINE: OUD ECHO Survey A: Fellowship Application

June 9

The purpose of this six-month fellowship program is to train Illinois primary care providers (physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants) in the assessment and treatment of opioid use disorders (OUD). The goal of the program is to increase access to opioid use disorder treatment services in downstate Illinois counties (i.e., outside of Chicago/Chicagoland) that currently have very limited or no access to medications for addiction treatment. [NOTE: If you practice in Chicago/Chicagoland, please apply instead to Rush’s fellowship program here.] The training will provide clinical guidance, technical support around the clinical workflows, policies, and protocols to ensure compliance with clinical standards, and training in evidence-based practice. Each participant will receive a certificate, approximately 30 hours of continuing education credits, and up to $2000 in training reimbursement* upon full completion.
