Welcome to COPE

COPE promotes collaboration among those who share a commitment to improving physician education and training about substance use disorders.

COPE’s activities involve sharing information, identifying resources to support physician training and education, engaging medical students and faculty in curriculum development, and creating synergy among its members’ efforts.

COPE's Mission:

The Coalition on Physician Education in Substance Use Disorders (COPE) is a voluntary organization devoted to improving patient care and the public health by assuring that all physicians are trained to prevent, identify, and provide specialty appropriate interventions for patients who use tobacco or illicit drugs, or who engage in unhealthy use of alcohol or non-medical use of prescription medications.
