HRSA T32 Post-Doctoral Training Fellowship
The Jefferson Mental Illness, Addiction, and Primary Care (Jeff-MAP) post doctoral training fellowship is a two or three year training opportunity supported by: the Center for Connected Care, the Departments of Family and Community Medicine, Psychiatry, and Emergency Medicine, the Jefferson Maternal Addiction Treatment Education and Research (MATER) program, the Jefferson Narcotic Addiction Rehabilitation Program (NARP) outpatient methadone treatment program, and community partner Project HOME.
This collaborative, multi-department and interdisciplinary training program will prepare 10 exceptional postdoctoral trainees to cultivate research projects in areas of urgent need in our region and nationally. This project will focus on addressing the closely interrelated priorities of ending the crisis of opioid use disorders and improving mental health access and care in integrated primary care and behavioral health settings. Research projects that include secondary data analysis, original research, and intervention development related to telehealth, integrated care, and medication assisted treatment are of specific interest. Jeff-MAP will be led by experienced faculty with demonstrated success in mentorship, training, and research, whose work has made meaningful impacts on the delivery of primary care services. The goal of Jeff-MAP is to prepare a diverse new generation of primary care researchers with advanced knowledge and skills to implement and evaluate innovative programs designed to improve the health and health care experience of populations affected by mental illness and opioid use disorder in the integrated primary and behavioral care setting.
