    STVHCS Advanced Fellows in Addictions Treatment have a wide range of research opportunities

    STVHCS Advanced Fellows in Addictions Treatment have a wide range of research opportunities, including psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, quality improvement, implementation science, and treatment engagement. A major strength for our training program is our access to one of the largest concentrations of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF)/Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) Veterans in the VA.

    The primary goals of our two-year fellowship are to train advanced fellows to be leaders who work in interdisciplinary healthcare teams to: (1) conduct innovative clinical research, (2) learn skills to implement evidence-based clinical treatment for Substance Use Disordered Veterans, and (3) effectively create and lead clinical services and systems of care and training programs that holistically heal Veterans with Substance Use Disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, traumatic brain injuries, chronic non-cancer pain, and other co-morbid conditions.

    Fellows will spend 75% time in educational, management, and research training and up to 25% in direct clinical service. Fellows will have individualized training and mentoring, to ensure a high quality learning experiences. Advanced fellows will join an academically robust and diverse training environment for physicians, psychologists, clinical pharmacists, and other allied health professionals in programs affiliated with the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and the University of Texas at Austin.
