Addiction Medicine Rounds

Brief description:

The Yale Addiction Medicine (AM) Rounds are held the second Thursday of every month on the School of Medicine campus. The content of the AM Rounds covers a range of topics relevant to Addiction Medicine including research, education, training and clinical care. As the field of Addiction Medicine continues to rapidly evolve, with Yale at the forefront, the AM Rounds has proven to be an exciting venue for discussion and interaction among all involved individuals including students, residents, fellows, and junior and senior faculty. In addition to allowing each of us to disseminate our work, the AM Rounds has provided a venue to forge and strengthen collaboration.

We are pleased to announce that Addiction Medicine Rounds are now CME accredited. Each session will be assigned 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
