Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT) Fellowship Program


New opportunity to participate in an expert-led, interactive training while continuing to practice

DMMA is offering a stipend-sponsored, specialized training to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to treat opioid use disorder through self-paced modules, live discussions, and facilitated webinars, through funding from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Training Objectives for the program include:

  • Integrate evidence-based opioid use disorder treatment into your care with a financially sustainable approach
  • Increase your ability to provide whole person care
  • Improve physical health outcomes for patients with opioid use disorders
  • Facilitate easier treatment access and reduce fragmented care for patients with opioid use disorders
  • Strengthen network and partnership with specialty behavioral health organizations
  • Support overdose prevention and recovery

Delaware’s program provides stipends for participants - $3,000 for clinical providers and $2000 for practice managers - with assistance through two tracks:

Clinical Track Practice Implementation Track
For physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants, to build knowledge and skills for effectively assessing and treating OUD in the outpatient setting. For practice managers and clinical staff who advance operational and administrative aspects of their OBOT program, to provide guidance for developing effective workflows and infrastructure. 

 

The Fellowship begins February 23, 2021 through September 23, 2021, via an online learning portal.
