The American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry, the California Department of Health Care Services-funded California Hub and Spoke System, PSATTC, and UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs are offering a Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Waiver Training focused on Tribal Health. Space is limited and registration will be filled on a first come, first served basis. These TWO two-hour trainings will together serve as the live portion of the Half and Half MAT Waiver Training. Attendees must attend BOTH sessions in their entirety in order to receive the link to the online training and receive their waiver.

This training is intended for MDs, DOs, PAs and NPs who are interested in prescribing buprenorphine.
