Meet ADAA's Clinical Fellows

Clinical Fellow LogoThe goal of the Clinical Fellows Program is to advance ADAA's mission of improving patient outcomes through education and training of clinicians from all disciplines. It offers participants an exclusive opportunity to further their clinical training in anxiety, depression, and related disorders through participation in continuing education at the annual conference, and online through webinars and group consultation. A certificate signifies a specialization in anxiety and depression and a dedication to continued education through ADAA's professional education programs. 

An exclusive benefit for ADAA’s clinical members, the Clinical Fellows Program provides an opportunity to participate in unique professional development activities, demonstrate a commitment to lifelong learning and to providing quality patient care.

Those selected as an ADAA Clinical Fellow benefit from opportunities to develop and improve clinical and decision-making skills, network with clinical experts and peers, and engage in robust exchanges of information.
