Buprenorphine prescribing: The Get Waivered Initiative makes it easier to get your DEA-X Waiver

A major development in curbing the opioid epidemic is the introduction of the medication buprenorphine to address opioid addiction. Being able to prescribe this medication, however, requires a special DEA-X Waiver in the United States. Dr. Alister Martin, the Founder of the Get Waivered initiative, is working to reduce the barriers for clinicians to obtain the training and paperwork necessary to obtain this waiver. Dr. Michelle Lin talks with Dr. Martin on this podcast about the backstory of the Get Waivered program, the lowered barriers to obtaining training, and some sneak peaks on what is new on the launching pad for his program.

Interesting fact: Medical students can participate in the free DEA-X waiver training now. The certificate of completion has no expiration date and can be submitted, when eligible for this waiver license.

Little Big Med Podcast: Gender Equity in Medicine

It’s time to talk about gender equity in medicine. Significant gender disparities exist in both healthcare institutions and professional societies. These disparities persist even in fields that are predominantly female, such as pediatrics. In fact, although women comprise 72.3% of active pediatricians, only 27.5% of pediatric department chairs across US medical schools are women. Why does this disparity exist? What can we do to address it? In this episode of the Little Big Med podcast, host Dr. Jason Woods discusses these questions with Dr. Nancy Spector, Professor of Pediatrics at Drexel University College of Medicine and Executive Director of the Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine (ELAM) program.

Should I even apply for visiting EM rotations? Fortunately, an experienced panel of EM program directors joins Dr. Michael Gisondi (Stanford) and Dr. Michelle Lin (UCSF) in discussing the thought processes, ongoing nuanced discussions, early available resources, and general mindset for the 2020-11 season.
