Free Buprenorphine Waiver Trainings for New York City Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants

Details: The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) is sponsoring a free Half-and-Half Buprenorphine Waiver Training in August.

Background: Buprenorphine is an effective medication for treatment of opioid use disorder, and can be prescribed in office-based primary care settings. Any physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant can prescribe buprenorphine after obtaining a waiver. Physicians are required to complete an 8-hour training in order to apply for a waiver; nurse practitioners and physician assistants must take 24 hours of training (inclusive of the 8-hour training) in order to apply. This course fulfills the 8-hour training requirement. The half-and-half format will include approximately 4 hours of online training due prior to approximately 4 hours of in-person training. Pre-registration by the deadline is required.

Registration deadline: Thursday August 16th To register please email buprenorphine@health.nyc.gov by the registration deadline with the following required information: • Full name • Email address • Title (i.e. MD, DO, NP, PA) • Affiliation • Practice address
