Annie Mithoefer, B.S.N., and Michael Mithoefer, M.D., will be providing an online training November 5-6 and November 9-12 to prepare additional therapists in Europe for the new study protocol, the open-label lead-in study for the European segment of Phase 3, also researching MDMA-assisted psychotherapy as a treatment for PTSD.
The Training and Supervision department is hiring one training coordinator and two adherence and supervision coordinators. We are excited for our growing department! The training team is continuing to carry out a training design project. The current focus of the project is aligning a competency framework for the MDMA Therapy Training Program with a training design plan. The next stage of design will consist of curriculum development and is anticipated to start in October. We are excited to re-open enrollment for the MDMA Therapy Training Program later in 2020 and launch our next round of trainings in 2021. Individuals interested in applying may visit the MAPS PBC website to learn more about our application procedures. We are still accepting applications and we will resume our admissions process once we schedule our next round of trainings.
