Medical educators have been tasked with the challenge to educate the next
generation of physicians to address the nation’s substance use disorder crisis. At
Rush University, a novel educational program was created under the leadership of
addiction medicine faculty to address the medical students’ needs.

By working directly with the Committee of Curriculum and Education, significant curriculum changes were executed in 2019 2020. Highlights include the buprenorphine waiver education, opioid overdose training and opioid stewardship education for responsible opioid prescribing.
