Rochester Regional Health in collaboration with Monroe County Department of Public Health will host the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry Buprenorphine Waiver Training course. The course is for providers interested in seeking their waiver to prescribe buprenorphine in office-based treatment of opioid use disorders. This is the “Half and Half” course, split into an online portion and an in-person portion. The Rochester Academy of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 4 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
For physicians: Once complete the 4 hour in person training, participants will receive the second half of the course – a 4 hour online self-study portion. At the end of the course, participants are required to pass an exam with a 75% or higher before applying for their waiver.
For NP/PAs: Once complete the 4 hour in person training, participants receive the second half of the course – a 4 hour online self-study portion. At the end of the course, participants are required to pass an exam with a 75% or higher before applying for their waiver. This option fulfills the first 8 hours out of the 24 hour requirement. The remaining training can be found at the pcssnow.org link below.
PCSS offers free waiver courses for physicians, NPs and PAs. For more information go to: https://pcssnow.org/medication-assisted-treatment/
