NYC DOHMH’s Buprenorphine Training and Technical Assistance Initiative provides free buprenorphine waiver training and technical assistance for physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants practicing in NYC. Buprenorphine is an effective medication for treatment of opioid use disorders, and can be prescribed in office-based primary care settings. 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.
