  • Is CME credit offered for the MAT waiver course?  If the training is being sponsored by an organization that is accredited to provide CME (i.e. MAHEC, AAPA, etc.), then yes. Programs looking to offer the waiver training are encouraged to coordinate with their local AHECs to provide CME.
  • Are there any resources for prescribers new to seeing patients with OUD/prescribing buprenorphine?
