2018 Program

The 2018 Addiction Medicine Conference (April 27-28) will again provide up-to-date substance use related education, applicable across general medical as well as addiction specialty practices. As in years past, the conference will be a mix of didactic plenary sessions and a wide range of workshops that are more focused and skills based.

The April 26 Pre-Conference will offer longer skill-based workshops and may include: the ABCs of Pain, Addiction Medicine Core Knowledge and Skills, Counseling Skills for Medical Clinicians, Advanced Skills for Buprenorphine providers, and a session focused on SUDs and pregnancy.
