MATE Training

The Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act requires prescribers renewing their DEA registration to have completed at least eight hours of training on opioid or other substance use disorders. 

No matter your specialty—cardiology, dermatology, family medicine, internal medicine, oncology, psychiatry, etc.—the East Coast Symposium is an ideal venue to fulfill your MATE Act requirements and learn how to better identify and care for your patients with co-occurring substance use issues.
