The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University will become the first medical school next year to produce graduates ready to prescribe buprenorphine, a key drug for the treatment of opioid-use disorder. By 2019, all of its graduates will have undertaken 23 hours of opioid-use disorder training which, at least in Rhode Island, qualifies them for a Drug Abuse Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA 2000) waiver. (DATA 2000 requires doctors t undergo at least eight hours of training to prescribe buprenorphine.)
If fighting the raging opioid epidemic is part of your motivation for attending medical school, you may want to carefully consider Brown’s Alpert Medical School.
Best of luck with your applications!
