  1. Hi all! I've seen a few posts on the forum hinting at the benefits of working in addiction medicine, but I wanted to formally ask if any of you have worked or currently work in addiction med, what has your experience been? I have worked in psychiatry for the last two years since graduating, and while I find it interesting in theory, practice has been unfulfilling. I had a rotation in a dual diagnosis facility, and it was easily the best clinical experience I've had to date. I'd love to transition into addiction med but would first like to hear some pros and cons from fellow PAs who have significant experience in this specialty. What is your facility like? How is the patient population? What is your typical patient load each day? What training did you receive and did you have prior experience? Do you feel more or less stress/burnout than other specialties you've practiced in? Is the pay competitive? If some of you could help answer any of these questions, I'd be quite grateful. Thank you!
  2. I Would like to get this ASAM certification when I'm done with PA school. Can I just have a collaborative agreement with a FM physician to obtain the certification? (will be practicing in MI) https://www.asam.org/resources/practice-resources/nurse-practitioners-and-physician-assistants-prescribing-buprenorphine
