Elective Rotation: Buprenorphine training
Contact: Nathalie Boittin
I spent 8 hours donig the PCSS-MAT Office-Based Treatment for Opioid Use Disorders via AOAAM to do buprenorphine training. This involved 4 hours of webinar training, of which there are a couple times month that one can do the training, followed by 4 hours of self-study which requires taking a (not very difficult) multiple choice test at the end in order to finish. You can then qualify for waiver eligibility to be able to prescribe buprenorphine. Training was free and was a good way to learn about appropriate work-up and prescribing of buprenorphine.
