Training | Free Buprenorphine Waiver Training

October 26, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 6:00 pm EDT


Free Buprenorphine Waiver Training
For New York City Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants
Registration Deadline: Friday, October 19th

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

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.
