The Team-Based SUD Training Program is an online, interprofessional training course that will take place over the three quarters of the 2021–22 academic year. Participants will learn skills and knowledge related to a healthcare team-oriented, non-stigmatizing approach to screening, assessment, and treatment of substance use disorders during three sessions.

The SAMHSA-funded program was developed as a collaboration between the Harborview Addiction Medicine program and CHSIE. It is designed for students from across health professions, including medicine, nursing, social work, public health, pharmacy, dentistry, physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant, speech and language pathology, and nutrition/dietetics.

The anticipated time commitment for this program is about five hours per quarter. The cohort will meet approximately one time per quarter in a required large group Zoom session, and one other time in small teams.  Below are dates/times for all sessions.

Registration will close September 24, 2021 at 5pm.
