ribbonThe California Society of Addiction Medicine offers high-quality, evidence-based Continuing Medical Education to enable physicians and other health professionals to improve the treatment of patients with substance use disorders.  CSAM courses draw upon the latest research and clinical advances in the scientific and medical communities and feature top experts in the field. CSAM was recently awarded "Accreditation with Commendation" by ACCME through the Institute for Medical Quality. Accreditation with Commendation is the highest level of accreditation and is awarded to only a small percentage of CME providers. 


Starting in the fall of 2017, the American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM) will offer physicians the opportunity to become certified in the subspecialty of addiction medicine. The first five years that the exam is offered is the optimal time for physicians to become board certified. After that, a one-year addiction medicine fellowship will be required.
