2022 Buprenorphine Training Series


Stay tuned for 2023 course announcements!

These courses are FREE to all Wisconsin providers who are eligible to prescribe buprenorphine. Registration is required.

This series is designed to increase treatment capacity for opioid use disorders by training more prescribers to be able to treat opioid use disorders with buprenorphine. These live courses have been reviewed and approved by the Wisconsin Medical Examining Board as meeting the requirements for the two-hour continuing education course on responsible opioid prescribing per Med 13.03(3) of the Wisconsin Administrative Code.


CONTENT: The x-waiver courses involve 4 hours of online training paired with 4 hours of in-person training. The self-paced online course will be available through ASAM’s website upon registration.

PARTICIPANT REQUIREMENTS: These courses are open to MDs, DOs, NPs, and PAs. MDs and DOs must complete the full 8-hour course to be eligible for their DATA Waiver.

Medical students and NP and PA students are eligible to take the course, but will not be eligible to apply for their waiver. Eligible providers who do not yet hold DATA Waivers are particularly encouraged to attend, but Waiver-holding providers can also attend for CME credit.
