The opioid crisis has brought attention to the need for comprehensive training and credentialing of physicians in the field of Addiction Medicine (ADM).  Organized medicine, medical educators and health systems are increasing their interest and attention to preventing and treating the primary disease of addiction, as opposed to historical attention focused solely on medical consequences.  With the recent recognition of ADM as an ABMS level subspecialty and the establishment of the first wave of ACGME accredited ADM fellowships, physicians now have two paths to secure certification in the field:  the Practice Pathway and the ADM Fellowship Pathway.

Learning Objectives
– Upon completion, participants will be able to describe the pathways for certification in addiction medicine.
– Upon completion, participants will be able to list the core competencies for training in addiction medicine fellowship programs.
– Upon completion, participants will be able to describe the roles of HRSA and ONDCP, along with ASAM and ACAAM, in meeting the nation's addiction medicine workforce needs.
