This a unique opportunity to be a Fellow in the Rutgers University Integrated Substance Use Disorder Training Program (RUISTP). The RUISTP is a federally funded, one-year, full-time, interprofessional fellowship program for licensed psychologists, social workers, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners. Selected Fellows will have the opportunity to gain distinctive expertise in team-based integrated care, and substance use disorder (SUD) service delivery in primary care medical settings. As part of the largest academic medical center in New Jersey, Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care offers an ideal environment to receive exclusive and specialized training in diverse treatment settings in underserved areas of the state. Fellows will have access to a large network of national and university-affiliated experts in health sciences and healthcare delivery, as well as access to university-wide educational and professional development resources. As an added bonus, we are centrally located in close proximity to both the New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas.

Clinical Training

Fellows will be matched to a participating clinical training site based on tailored assessments of Fellows’ training needs and interests. Fellows will receive intensive clinical training and robust didactics in integrated behavioral healthcare and SUD treatment. The RUISTP will prepare Fellows to deliver evidence-based opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment; nurse practitioners and physician assistants will specifically obtain DATA-2000 waivers for the medication treatment of OUD. All clinical sites are in high-need, medically underserved communities of New Jersey.

Research Opportunities

In addition to clinical training, Fellows will have the opportunity to engage in research as desired and in accordance with professional development goals. As one of the nation’s leading public academic research centers, Rutgers University offers Fellows the chance to learn more about and engage in meaningful clinical and health sciences research.


Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. Fellows will be provided with full, standard benefits including health insurance and paid time off. Funding is available for materials and professional development related to program goals.
