Medical Management of HIV, AIDS, Hepatitis and COVID Course
1675 Owens St
Mission Bay Conference Center
San Fancisco, CA 94143
This course provides the active, intermediate-to-advanced clinician with a comprehensive review of the science of HIV, Hepatitis, and COVID, as well as an update on the application of HIV, Hepatitis, and COVID therapies, and management and prevention of STIs including MPox.
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), basic HIV pharmacology, ART resistance, IRIS, and HIV related opportunistic infections. All course lecturers are leading clinicians and teachers who are dedicated to teaching in their areas of expertise.
The COVID pandemic has further amplified existing health disparities as well as the vulnerability of our patients, making the need for up-to-date information about HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, and COVID 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.
* Days 1 and 2 will be offered both on Zoom and in-person. Day 3 will be on Zoom only.
This course is designed for Primary Care practitioners, (Internal Medicine, Family Practice, Physician Assistant's, Nurse Practitioners and RN's), Infectious Disease specialists and Pharmacists, who care for adult and geriatric HIV patients, in rural and/or urban settings, are our essential target audience. Successful care of HIV patients involves dealing with complications of many end organs and systems (GI, CV, Renal, Neurology, Dermatology, OB-GYN, Urgent Care and ER) so the course is germane to those specialties as well. Given the notable impact of hepatic disease (viral hepatitis and fatty liver), MPox and COVID on HIV, these content areas are a particular focus of our course.
The identified practice gaps relate to these learners and to their scope of professional activities. There is a core knowledge base, competencies and performances required to skillfully care for those infected with HIV/AIDS or those co-infected with COVID-19 and/or MPox.
