Registration Instructions from the New York State Department of Health:
Physicians, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants seeking to register with the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) to certify patients for medical marijuana must complete a NYSDOH approved Medical Use of Marijuana course. Pharmacists working in dispensing facilities must successfully complete a NYSDOH approved Medical Use of Marijuana course before they may counsel, or supervise another employee who may counsel certified patients and designated caregivers on the use, administration, and risks associated with approved medical marijuana products.
Practitioners who have completed the course and who wish to register with NYSDOH to certify patients for medical marijuana must email the course completion certificate (in PDF format) to NYSDOH at firstname.lastname@example.org, along with the practitioner’s State License number and Health Commerce System (HCS) User ID. Upon validation of the information provided, NYSDOH will send an email confirmation to the practitioner containing instructions for completing their registration. Practitioners may not certify patients for medical marijuana until they receive confirmation from NYSDOH that they are registered to do so.
