Jeanette Tetrault is an Associate Professor of Medicine and Program Director for the Addiction Medicine Fellowship at Yale University School of Medicine. She has dedicated her career to advancing education and scholarship in the field of addiction medicine. As such, she teaches addiction medicine to students, residents, fellows and providers in practice. She is on the Board of Directors for the Addiction Medicine Foundation and for the Addiction Medicine Fellowship Directors Association.
As a Macy Faculty Scholar, Dr. Tetrault will build on the existing infrastructure of the Interprofessional Longitudinal Clinical Experience at Yale (ICLE) to develop an interprofessional curriculum where learners will apply the chronic disease model to addiction, enhance clinical skill development, and characterize the challenges patients and their families may face while navigating the healthcare system. She will rigorously evaluate the curriculum and develop a dissemination toolkit for replication at other institutions.
David A. Fiellin, MD, Professor of Medicine in the Department of Internal Medicine at Yale University School of Medicine, serves as Dr. Tetrault’s mentor.
