Healthcare Professional?

Practitioners licensed to practice in New York State and who are registered with the NY Department of Health can approve patients for medical cannabis.

The Department has approved two course-providers for the required four-hour course:

The Answer Page – The online course will cost $249 to take. Successful completion of the course will provide 4.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CME CreditsTM, 4.5 CPE credits and 4.5 CNE credits.

The Medical Cannabis Institute – The online course will cost $229 to take. Successful completion of the course will provide 4 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 4 ACPE Credits.

Following successful completion of the NYSDOH-approved course, and upon full compliance with the other requirements set forth in 10 NYCRR §1004.1(a), practitioners who wish to register with NYSDOH to certify patients for medical cannabis must complete the following steps:

  • Log-in to the Health Commerce System.
  • Select “All Applications” from the My Content drop down menu.
  • Click the “M” tab, find the Medical Marijuana Data Management System (MMDMS) application in the list, and click the green and white “+” icon in the “Add/Remove” column to add the MMDMS application.
  • After selecting the MMDMS application, you will be prompted to enter information required to complete the registration process.
  • Any questions regarding the practitioner registration process should be emailed to mmp@health.ny.gov. Physician assistants must complete and email the authorization form below to mmp@health.ny.gov at the time of registration. The supervising physician must also be registered with the program.

Curaleaf values practitioners.

We provide frequent open houses for you to meet thought-leaders in the field, a bi-monthly clinically-focused podcast (Leaf & Learn), a quarterly newsletter featuring breaking research and industry news, and most importantly, our pharmacists work directly with you to provide the best possible care to your patients.
