Clinical Experience

Cooper University Health Care is a large health system with a university medical center including a Level 1 Trauma Center, 635 beds, approximately 30,600 admissions, 80,000 ED visits, and 2200 deliveries per year. It has a catchment area of 2.5 million people and is the regional referral center for maternal fetal medicine, neonatology, and for pregnant patients with substance use disorders. Cooper University Health Care is located within an impoverished urban community with high rates of OUD but provides care for a socioeconomically and racially diverse population as it operates a large network of urban, suburban, and rural primary care and specialty offices throughout the South Jersey region. Fellows will rotate in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings. Some examples of rotations include:

  • Inpatient Addiction Medicine Consult Service, Camden, NJ
  • Inpatient Acute Medical Detoxification Service, Bridgeton, NJ
  • Outpatient Addiction Medicine Specialty Clinic, Camden, NJ

In addition fellows have the opportunity to rotate in the Early Intervention Program: A Ryan White Funded Wrap-Around HIV Program with integrated addiction medicine specialty care, primary care, and other infectious disease care. Fellows will also spend clinical time rotating in our Division’s Perinatal Substance Use Disorder program. This program provides wrap-around care for pregnant and post-partum patients.
