The Alcohol Research Program in the Department of Psychiatry sponsors individual fellows who appear likely to develop academic research and teaching careers. Areas of interest range from basic neurochemistry through clinical treatment trials. Each person is supervised by Marc Schuckit, M.D., frequently in tandem with another faculty member. Fellows work with Dr. Schuckit on a frequent basis, are attached to one of the alcohol or drug research teams, are invited to participate in all meetings, and fully participate in all educational programs established for fellows to increase their knowledge of statistics, research design, and so on. These fellowships are developed with Dr. Schuckit through specific applications to NIAAA, NIDA, or the VA Research and Educational Services. This program also offers the possibility of individuals recruited through other services such as geriatrics, liaison psychiatry, and the CRC to focus their research efforts and part of their training with the Alcohol and Drug Research Group. Anyone interested in this fellowship should contact Dr. Marc Schuckit directly at the San Diego VAMC, (858) 552-8585 ext. 7978.
