Grants to USA medical schools, nursing schools and programs, and physician assistant schools to improve education addressing opioid use disorders. Applicants are advised that registrations required to apply may take up to six weeks to complete. Funding is intended to ensure that graduate-level students receive the theoretical knowledge and practical training required for them to treat opioid use disorders (OUD) and prescribe medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) in office-based settings upon graduation and receipt of licensure. In addition, this grant program is focused on the broader integration of substance use disorder (SUD) related education into the medical and nursing curricula of the respective academic institution.

The purpose of the program is to provide resources to graduate-level students in medical (MD/DO), physician assistant (PA), nurse practitioner (NP) and other eligible nursing programs (clinical nurse specialists (CNS), certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNA), and certified nurse midwives (CNM) practices).

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), Hispanic-serving Institutions (HSI), and Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-serving Institutions (AANAPISI) have historically faced disparities in resources and opportunities for their students, and the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted continuing and new challenges for these institutions and their students. To advance equity for all Americans, SAMHSA encourages these institutions to apply for this funding opportunity.

Every grant recipient is expected to:

  • Develop and implement an OUD curriculum framed in a long-term illness and recovery management model that covers:
    • Evidence-based screening for and current diagnosis of OUD;
    • Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved medications to treat OUD;
    • Harm reduction interventions including overdose education, naloxone administration, and use of fentanyl test strips; The role of the practitioner in recovery management for patients with OUD;
    • Staffing roles and considerations;
    • Diversion control; and
    • Privacy and confidentiality issues in treatment
  • Develop and implement a comprehensive set of other SUD-related courses, trainings, or webinars to ensure students are prepared to screen for, diagnose, and address other SUDs in addition to OUD after graduation. Content of the training will include, but not limited to, topics outlined in the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA)
  • Develop a step-by-step plan for integrating the above content into the general practice curriculum (medical and/or advanced nursing), including inclusion of the curriculum into the established school curricula and training of health professionals after the grant has ended.
  • Ensure that students receiving the education are exposed to actual practical implementation and, at a minimum, have the opportunity to shadow physicians, PAs, and NPs and other nurse specialties who are providing evidence-based treatment for individuals receiving MOUD.
  • Provide curriculum to SAMHSA for its review prior to implementation to assure its consistency with the programmatic intent and requirements of the grant. The curriculum should also adhere to standards and best practices for medical school and other health professional education.
  • Ensure students receive at least 8 hours of training for physicians and at least 24 hours for PAs/NPs and other nurse specialties on the OUD curriculum
  • Develop and implement MOUD-focused curricula as part of a residency or fellowship training program.
