Physician Refresher/Re-Entry Program Pain Management and Substance Use Disorder Course

About the Course

Drexel’s Pain Management and Substance Use Disorder course is a self-paced online learning program. The goal of this course is to provide students with a foundation to demonstrate and assess communication skills, knowledge and management in the area of pain management and substance use disorder. This course includes:

  • A self-paced CME pre-course component
  • Scheduled pre- and post-testing components with feedback, available virtually and in real time


Faculty members are from Drexel University College of Medicine, under the leadership of Nielufar Varjavand, MD.


As the course is self-paced, the program can be started anytime. Course includes both required and optional learning components. Students may earn up to 27 hours of CME.

   I enjoyed the supportive and compassionate atmosphere and having the opportunity to share my challenges and worries, while getting encouraging and actionable advice. It was definitely a valuable experience that I’d highly recommend to any physician in the refresher program.
