Education & Training

Trainees - including undergraduates, graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, clinical fellows, and professional students - are essential to the mission and vision of the MDT on Addiction. As a trainee, you will find varied and exciting ways to learn by engaging with our world-class faculty through research, courses, seminars, symposia, and programs. Access to collaborative mentors with diverse expertise, state-of-the-art research technologies and professional development opportunities will enable you to chart a unique path to your future. Whether the next step is graduate or medical school, a postdoc position, or a professional career in academic research, education, industry, the training you receive from the Medical Discovery Team will strengthen your ability to compete and succeed in that role. 

Trainees at all levels who are engaged in addiction science research are invited to present their research findings in the Medical Discovery Team’s monthly Works in Progress meeting. They are also encouraged to attend a host of other seminars, symposia, and grand rounds, including the Medical Discovery Team on Addiction’s seminar series. See the calendar for the scheduling of these educational events.
