Cannabis is now legal across the U.S. Used as an alternative to medications for chronic pain and other conditions, cannabis is also the fastest growing industry in the country, with sales expected to reach over $10 billion in total this year.
With such a dramatic rise in interest, there is an even greater demand for clinicians, dispensary managers, and other industry professionals to understand the indications, counter-indications, benefits, and risks of cannabis.
The University of Vermont is the first medical school in the nation to offer a professional certificate in cannabis science and medicine. The seven-week, online professional certificate is designed for physicians, dispensary personnel, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physician assistants, and regulators.
Offered by UVM’s Department of Pharmacology, the non-credit program covers cannabis history, business, law and policy, plant biology, biological effects on humans, production and safety, pharmacology, and clinical research. Explore the Cannabis Programs at UVM in this interactive session.
