This initiative focuses on creation through research and innovation. Research scientists, experienced physician mentors, ATHP Fellows, and Trainees in the Substance Use and Mental Health Concentration collaborate to move the field of addiction education research forward. Activities include:
- ATHP Fellows: Residents, Researchers, and Educationalists (ATHP FRRE): This group, all with interest in substance use disorders, consists of 6 Psychiatry Residents, 2 Preventive Medicine/Public Health Residents, 3 Researchers and 4 Educationalists, pursue projects in research and education while guided by the ATHP team of experts.
- ATHP Research Institute: A critical part of the Addiction Training for Health Professionals, the ATHP Research Institute develops research and disseminates it through peer-reviewed publication and other media, that evaluates and improves ATHP’s interventions. The team accomplishes this through work with North American- and globally-based cohorts of globally-renowned addiction medicine subject matter experts, and their mentees/physicians-in-training. The research team consists of the ATHP Research Staff, the ATHP FRRE Team, as well as, all of the enrollees in the Substance Use and Mental Health Concentration at Public Health U. The ATHP Research Team also support the research projects of ATHP Fellows and Concentration Trainees.
- Innovations: This team is tasked with identifying, leveraging, and testing new technologies to enhance the delivery of quality education and training in SUD treatment and prevention.
