NIDA Mentored Training Award in Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Treatment Science

The NIDA Mentored Training Award in Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Treatment Science seeks to support the development of expertise in SUD through completion of a mentored experience and project that utilizes existing evidence-based treatment science. The purpose of the award is to enhance the applicant's knowledge of SUD treatment research and the dissemination and adoption of evidence-based SUD treatment practices through a plan that will:

  • Provide the applicant 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.
  • Provide the applicant 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 applicant 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 AANP National Conference.
  • Link the applicant with an experienced Mentor to guide and facilitate an up to 15 month Mentored experience, culminating in a project related to dissemination and/or adoption of SUD research findings.
