In accordance with 2021 changes in practice guidelines for administering buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid use disorder, physician assistants are required to apply to the Drug Enforcement Agency for a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine. To treat more than 30 patients, however, providers must complete 24 hours of specialized training to prescribe buprenorphine, one of three medications approved by the FDA for the treatment of opioid use disorder. The training includes 8 hours of waiver training and an additional 16 hours of training.
How it Works: When you have completed the entire course, you will receive a certificate of completion. Physicians will then be able to apply for the waiver to prescribe buprenorphine. All other eligible providers can apply for the waiver after completing an additional 16-hour course here for advanced practice nurses and here for PAs.
This training is available as a self-paced session as well as a combination of live and self-paced.
