Overview

This course provides the active, intermediate-to-advanced clinician with a comprehensive review of the science of HIV and key infections including Hepatitis, RSV and COVID, as well as an update on the application of appropriate therapies. For ambitious new clinicians who want a challenge, we still offer our New Clinicians Track (NCT). This track provides five additional lectures that cover antiretroviral therapy (ART) 101, basic HIV pharmacology, and management of ART resistance, IRIS, and opportunistic infections. All course lecturers are leading clinicians and teachers who are dedicated to teaching in their areas of expertise.

Acute and Long COVID continue to amplify existing health disparities and contribute to the vulnerability of all of our patients, making the need for up-to-date information about HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, RSV, COVID and other key infections essential for providing high quality care. Current treatment options for acute COVID and understanding the science and management of Long COVID will be addressed.

All lectures will be cased-based with at least 2-4 ARS questions per session. Question and answer time as well as faculty panels are weaved into each conference day. The panels are designed with ARS questions so that you can privately test your individual knowledge against the experts throughout the conference. Questions that arise in the Chat will be answered throughout each conference day by our enthusiastic faculty.

TARGET AUDIENCE
This course is designed for practicing internists, family practice physicians, infectious disease specialists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and pharmacists. For three days, we will focus on the breadth of practical issues in the care of people living with HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, RSV, COVID and other key infections.
