Fellowship in Cannabinoid Medicine

This six-month fellowship is intended to train attending physicians to practice cannabinoid medicine with the rigor and data-driven experience comparable to all fields of medicine.

Each week will be comprised of two full-day clinical experiences, a one half-day didactic experience as well as independent work. Each month will focus on a separate learning module designed to guide the fellow from physician to cannabinoid specialist.  Modules will be comprised of guided clinical encounters with patients at the inhaleMD clinic (using telemedicine), independent assigned reading and subsequent small-group discussion, and other didactic experiences.  At the conclusion of the fellowship, the learner will have the information and the confidence to practice cannabinoid medicine independently.

The fellowship includes the opportunity to work shoulder-to-shoulder with the staff at inhaleMD, including the founder, Jordan Tishler, MD., one of the most highly regarded and sought-after experts in the field of cannabinoid medicine.

Additionally, the fellow will receive a one-year, complimentary membership to the Association of Cannabinoid Specialists to further their education and to provide broader connections to colleagues.  This includes access to Dr. Tishler’s ongoing monthly mentoring program.

                  leadership - Fellowship

                  I cannot recommend inhaleMD’s Fellowship program highly enough.

                  During my search for cannabinoid education I explored many options. I came across “card mills” which were willing to pay me simply for providing their patients medical marijuana cards. And, to be honest, I initially signed up with one of them. When I asked what happened if I didn’t feel a patient should be taking medical cannabis, I was told that they would be sent to another physician for certification and that I would not be paid. This seemed to me to be a process that encouraged unethical medical practices; one that contributes to the perception that medical marijuana is just a legalized way to let stoners get stoned.

                  I was fortunate enough to have been referred to inhaleMD and Dr. Jordan Tishler for true, science-based, medical cannabis education. During my fellowship I learned about the endocannabinoid system, the science behind the different methods of cannabis administration and the risks associated with certain cannabinoids, medical conditions, and medications.

                  I could go on and on. The bottom line is that I cannot imagine practicing cannabinoid medicine without the education that inhaleMD’s Fellowship provides. To know that I have their continued support is invaluable. And, as I opened with, I cannot recommend it highly enough.

                  Due to COVID-19, and for the foreseeable future, all of our appointments are being done by telemedicine. As it turns out, this has been wonderfully successful — patients love not having to take time away from work, fight traffic, or worry about parking. For us, telemedicine is like doing old-fashioned home visits — we get to see people in their own environments. What started out as an adaptation to the current crisis has transformed into a better way of providing healthcare.

                  Telemedicine, using Zoom, is easy to do with just a few clicks. It's also safe and secure.
