In its commitment to clinical care and training, ADAA's Clinician Trainee Award acknowledges those who have excelled in their performance in an internship or clinical training setting.

First granted in 2012, this award provides up to four clinician trainees the opportunity to attend the annual conference, meet with a senior clinician mentor, and become involved with ADAA.
