Young Jo NIDA-AACAP Award

The NIDA-AACAP Resident Training Award in Substance Use Disorder is a partnership between AACAP and the NIDA Clinical Trials Network (CNT) 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 award provides up to one year of support to general and child and adolescent psychiatry residents to support training in dissemination of research. Through support from this program, the awardee(s) will engage in a Mentored opportunity to learn about key areas of SUD and SUD treatment strategies through their project, attendance at conferences and workshops, and interaction with leading experts in the field.
