University Of Michigan-Ann Arbor received a 3-year grant from SAMHSA to expand their medical school X-waiver curriculum to their Advance Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) and Physician Assistant (PA) programs to increase the number of APRNs and PAs who can prescribe buprenorphine and ultimately increase access to providers who are trained and willing to prescribe Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD). X-waiver curriculum and training will be included for for primary care nurse practitioner students (family and adult-gerontology), PA students and other APRN students (acute care, midwifery, and pediatric). By the end of the grant period, University of Michigan plans to have trained 300 APRNs, 136 PAs and 510 medical students.
