AAAP Half and Half Buprenorphine Training

The Department of Psychiatry is pleased to offer again the Half and Half buprenorphine waiver training, an 8 hour CME course (4 hrs online, 4 hrs live) that is provided free of charge through a grant to the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry. The live training is open to the University of Utah community and others.

We encourage interested attending physicians, residents, fellows, physician assistants and nurse practitioners to attend. Other attendees with an interest in buprenorphine treatment are welcome to attend (but need to register and complete the online and live modules).

This training qualifies physicians to apply for a DATA 2000 waiver to prescribe buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid addiction and withdrawal. The 8 hours of training count towards the 24 hours of approved training needed by Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners to prescribe buprenorphine.
