In the News: How Ohio’s Medical Schools are Battling the Opioid Epidemic

When medical schools across Ohio teach courses on opioids and substance use disorder, they are likely using a curriculum developed by a NEOMED team led by Stacey Gardner-Buckshaw, Ph.D., M.P.A., assistant professor, family and community medicine in the College of Medicine.

Dr. Gardner-Buckshaw discussed the curriculum in a recent interview with health reporter Monica Robbins of WKYC-TV3 in Cleveland.

“The curriculum in its entirety is not start to finish, it’s done in a series of modules that each medical school could pick and choose to use as part of another course as it fits into the course,” Dr. Gardner-Buckshaw said in the interview. “The goal is to have the right balance of content to ensure that students have what they need to be good doctors practicing in this area.”
