The David C. Lewis, MD Fellowship in Addiction Medicine

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, all gifts to support the fellowship will be matched up to a total of $50,000!

As the only fellowship program in Rhode Island that trains physicians in the treatment of substance use disorders, the David C. Lewis, MD Fellowship in Addiction Medicine is helping to address the great need for physicians trained in addiction medicine. Fellows in this program develop clinical expertise in the treatment of substance use disorders while also pursuing scholarly activities in the areas of research, medical education, or policymaking. We are committed to providing the best possible training experience to the next generation of addiction medicine physicians. One hundred percent of the donations to this fund are used to support expenses related to the training of our fellows and to provide our fellows with additional career development opportunities.
