The gap of treatment availability for patients with an opioid use disorder and existing providers highlights the importance of more provider training. This session uses national survey data on medical school curricula to review the status of medical education in addiction medicine and opioid related topics. Participants will be introduced to a DATA 2000-approved medical student waiver training. This course addresses the treatment gap through an enhancement of medical school curriculum. Participants will observe examples of online videos, the faculty guide, and assessment tool. The session will showcase innovative early adoption of the course and ways it may be implemented within a school’s existing curriculum. Questions, suggestions and comments will be encouraged.
• Explain the current status of addiction medicine education in medical schools in the United States.
• Describe the variable ways in which the waiver training can be taught in medical schools.
• Evaluate the importance of this training independent of the specialty the student chooses to pursue.
