Course Description

Addiction Medicine Focus Course - CLME8841

Alcohol and illicit drug abuse are the top 10 contributors of morbidity and mortality in the world, nation and Oklahoma. Primary care physicians must be aware of the risk, incidence, prevention and treatment of substance use disorders. The Addiction Medicine Focus Course aims to enhance the student’s awareness of addiction-related risks and the outcomes associated with abuse, particularly focusing on the epidemiologic findings for Oklahoma. The course will also concentrate on practical skill development by reinforcing prior classroom learnings and extending previously learned as well as newly acquired skills to clinical settings. In addition, the course will familiarize the student with trends in public policymaking which impact prevention and treatment.

Course Coordinator: Richard Wansley, Ph.D., Department of Behavioral Sciences
