The Ohio Advanced Gambling Treatment Fellowship (Advanced Fellowship) provides nine months of research, education, and clinical learning opportunities to eligible health professionals at the doctoral or master’s level. Fellows are trained to be role models in leading, developing, conducting, and evaluating innovative research, education, and clinical care pertaining to gambling disorder.
