Dr. Knight expressed appreciation that the ACGME training opportunities in addiction medicine are open to doctors of various specialties, he said.
“A lot of times subspecialty fellowships are only available to one specialty,” said Dr. Knight. “In this case, it looks like they’ve been very deliberate to make this available to multiple specialties. I think that really sends an important message that this is not just one specialty that is focused on [addiction medicine], but really should be something that all specialties are engaged and involved in.”
