Field Placement

We have existing partnerships with four (4) interprofessional behavioral health programs providing substance use treatment, including MAT for OUD in high need areas: Mountain Manor Treatment Centers, Kolmac Health Centers, UMMS Upper Chesapeake Health System/Harford Memorial Hospital Behavioral Health Services, and the UMMS Walter P. Carter Clinics.  Please note that BHWISE-IOWA approved field placements are diverse, varied and expanding.  Existing partnerships may change, and new relationships with other field placement agencies may be developed.  If you apply for the BHWISE-IOWA Fellowship, you must list BHWISE approved field placements on your advanced field application. 

All field placements that are approved will provide interprofessional and experiential learning opportunities, and clinical supervision for BHWISE-IOWA Fellows.  The approved sites will provide training for social work and psychiatric nurse practitioner students together.  Field placement agencies are certified addiction treatment programs through the State of Maryland Behavioral Health Administration, and provide treatment to individuals with public and private insurance.
