Details:

The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) is sponsoring free upcoming Half-and-Half Buprenorphine Waiver Trainings.

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.
