The cannabis industry is growing quickly, and medical professionals are needed to help lead and provide guidance. That’s where a new program from the University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences comes in.
The school’s initial program, offered through the CU Anschutz Medical Campus in Colorado for the first time last spring, is an eight-week course for continuing education. The goal of the program is to teach what medical cannabis can do for patient care, as well as how cannabis should and should not fit into the medical world. There was so much demand for the program that the school is expanding its offerings to include advanced degrees in Cannabis Science and Medicine.
