The Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment Medical Residency Program at Baylor College of Medicine has a mission to train residents and faculty in the principles of SBIRT and increase the use of SBIRT in medical residency programs and physician practices.

SBIRT was developed to advance and increase detection and intervention with patients who have, or are at-risk for, substance use disorders.

The BCM Medical Residency Training Program uses an evidence-based curriculum, first developed for the InSight for Health Project, to train participating residents in SBIRT skills and practices.
