Brief Report


Objective: The aim of this paper is to report workforce information about graduates from accredited training programs in addiction psychiatry. Methods: As of June 30, 2002 there were 44 ACGME-accredited addiction psychiatry programs. The author asked the directors of these programs to complete a workforce survey about their graduates. Results: Seventy-three percent of program directors responded, providing information about 186 addiction psychiatrists. Forty-one percent of the graduates were employed in academic settings. Sixty-four percent of graduates employed in clinical settings dealt primarily with substance abuse patients. A majority of respondents described graduates as satisfied with compensation packages. Conclusion: Addiction psychiatry offers opportunities in a variety of settings that allow new graduates to utilize their subspecialty training.
