About the MOUD Preceptor Program: Our mini-residency training offers content that is not covered in the buprenorphine waiver training for primary care providers who are seeking to refine their skills.  Specific topics covered include diversion, continued substance use, benzodiazepine use, point of care testing, harm reduction and pain management.  Cases will be presented to help participants discuss ways to address patient needs and discussion is encouraged.  Our faculty is highly experienced and are eager to help others navigate buprenorphine prescribing.
