This semi-annual case conference reviews the care of a hospital patient who is an outpatient of one of the addiction services. An addiction psychiatry faculty member serves as a discussant. The fellows caring for the patient give a formal presentation of the case, and if appropriate, the faculty member interviews the patient and then leads a discussion of the case. General psychiatry residents are invited to attend.
