Current research from Boston Medical Center indicates that education in addiction medicine among American medical students and residents is largely inadequate. What is being done to ensure that patients at risk receive optimal medical care from appropriately trained personnel? Joining host Dr. Mary Leuchars is Dr. Daniel Alford, associate professor of medicine and director of Chief Resident Immersion Training in Addiction Medicine section of general internal medicine at Boston University School of Medicine. The topic of discussion is how to expand training in addiction medicine for young medical professionals, assessing the methods developed at Boston Medical Center.
