AMMP - Addiction Medicine Mentorship Program 2022-23

Includes a Live Event on 06/01/2022 at 6:00 PM (EDT)

This longitudinal, year-long program (June 2022-March 2023) will offer medical students (MS1-MS4) an opportunity to engage with experts in the field of addiction while working towards the completion of a research project. 

This opportunity offers interested medical students an opportunity to engage with the clinical and academic aspects of addiction treatment and research. This program will provide the tools to treat patients with Substance Use Disorders in whichever field or specialty you ultimately pursue.

Schedule:

Please watch "The Hungry Heart" prior to 6/1/22.  https://vimeo.com/ondemand/the...

Dr. Kushner has asked that all mentees view the documentary film "The Hungry Heart" prior to her talk. It's about 90 minutes, and can be rented on Vimeo for $3.99. This should be the only time we ask mentees to spend any money on this program, but if you have issues/questions/concerns, please reach out to Dr. Latronica and we can find an arrangement. She also asked me to mention that some of the language in the documentary (specifically stigmatizing language) likely does not "hold up" in our current environment, but she believes the documentary as a whole is important viewing.
