Beginning in May 2018, medical school students at the Warren Alpert Medical School will graduate with the necessary training to qualify for the required “waiver” from the federal Drug Enforcement Administration to prescribe medications such as buprenorphine, known by its brand name Suboxone, to treat opioid-use disorders. The program—the first of its kind in the country—is part of a treatment strategy in Gov. Gina Raimondo’s Overdose Prevention and Intervention Task Force’s Action Plan.
