Programs and Seminars

NYU has a long history of leadership in addiction training beginning with the alcohol pavilion established at Bellevue Hospital in 1892. NYU’s educational role in addiction psychiatry was formalized in 1987 with the establishment of the Division of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse in the Department of Psychiatry. Basic research training was formalized with the establishment of a NIDA-funded post-doctoral training program on mechanisms of addictive and appetitive disorders in 1992. In recent years, the NY Node of the NIDA Clinical Trials Network has served to extend training across the greater NY area.  NYU is also well-recognized on a national level with leadership in research dissemination via representation in key positions in the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry, the American Society of Addiction Medicine, the Association for Medical Education and Research in Substance Abuse, and the Congress on Problems of Drug Dependence, as well as key addictions journals editorships.

Programs in several NYU Schools and in at least two Departments in the School of Medicine fall under the rubric of research training.
