University of Florida Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellow, Young Jo, MD, has bee selected for the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) – American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) Resident Training Award in Substance Use Disorder (SUD).

The training program is a  partnership between AACAP and NIDA Clinical Trials Network (CTN) to fund NIDA Mentor-Facilitated Training Awards, a key component of the NIDA CTN Dissemination Initiative, supporting the development of expertise in SUD, especially opioid use disorder (OUD), through the completion of a mentor-supervised project focused on adoption and/or dissemination of SUD treatment research and the publication of the results.

The goals of the training program are to improve the knowledge of evidence-based SUD treatment among healthcare providers, disseminate SUD research findings, adopt these evidence-based approaches in medical settings, and foster growth and development in the future leaders in SUD management and research.

Dr. Jo will work with a mentor to develop a project that addresses or improves upon gaps in the dissemination of research findings or implementation/adoption of evidence-based treatment practices to be presented at the NIDA CTN Annual meeting.
