Grants to USA medical residents and trainees for mentorship-based training programs in the treatment of substance use disorders. Program participants must be matched with an experienced faculty member. The purpose of the program is to enhance the participants' knowledge of SUD treatment research and the dissemination and adoption of evidence-based SUD treatment practices.

The Emergency Medicine Foundation has partnered with NIDA to fund training awards to support the development of expertise in substance use disorders (SUD) through completion of a Mentored experience and project focused on dissemination of SUD treatment research. The NIDA Mentored Training Award goals are: 1) to promote and improve knowledge of evidence-based SUD treatment among health care providers, 2) to promote dissemination of substance use disorder research findings, 3) to promote the adoption of evidence-based approaches in medical settings, and 4) to facilitate the academic growth and development of future leaders in SUD management. 

Awardees are to develop and execute a plan designed to increase their knowledge of SUD and SUD treatment and complete a project aimed at improving the dissemination and/or adoption of SUD research findings. Secondary data analysis may be completed in pursuit of these aims, provided the project proposed is eligible for IRB exemption and has a dissemination/adoption focus.

The purpose of the award is to enhance a resident/trainee’s knowledge of SUD treatment research and the dissemination and adoption of evidence-based SUD treatment practices through a plan that will:

  • Provide the trainee with experience that eventually fosters interest in either a clinical career providing evidence-based management of SUD in medical settings or potentially stimulates interest in securing a NIH career development or other grant award to pursue implementation and related research in the field of substance misuse and substance use disorder in subsequent years.
  • Provide the trainee with education and experience in effective dissemination of research findings and the implementation/adoption of research in clinical practice. Applicants are encouraged to develop projects that address or improve upon current gaps in the dissemination of research findings or implementation/adoption of evidence-based treatment practices. The project results will be presented via poster at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Annual Conference, and the Awardee is strongly encouraged to develop a manuscript for submission for publication in a peerreviewed journal.
  • Link the trainee with an experienced Mentor to guide and facilitate an up to one year-long Mentored experience, culminating in a project related to dissemination and/or adoption of SUD research findings.
  • Provide the trainee with a Mentored opportunity to learn about key areas of SUD and SUD treatment strategies through systematic literature review, attendance at conferences and workshops, and interaction with leading experts in the field
