  • New DEA Training Requirements: Beginning June 27, 2023, all DEA-registered practitioners will be required to check a box on their online DEA registration form - for either initial applications or renewals - affirming they have completed 8 hours of training on the treatment and management of patients with opioid or other substance use disorders. TAPA has put together an FAQ sheet to provide guidance on this topic and also partnered with the Tennessee Medical Association to offer online courses to help PAs meet this new requirement. Click here to access this online course. The cost of the course is $299, and TAPA members can save $50 by using the following discount code: TN50. The AAPA also has a Treating and Managing OUD and SUD Series in their Learning Central catalog which offers courses to help satisfy this training requirement. 

  • PAs in the News: PAs are doing great things in Tennessee! Visit our PAs in the News page to see local media coverage of PAs contributing to their communities, caring for patients, and advocating for the PA profession.
