Physician Education: Bridging Clinical Research and Patient Care

Instructions and FAQs

Webcasts are long distance learning continuing medical education (CME) activities based on the successful IAS–USA regional 1–day, advanced-level CME courses on HIV/AIDS-related treatment issues. The webcasts enable HIV clinicians who are unable to attend the live regional courses, as well as HIV clinicians around the world, to access clinically relevant information and learn at their own pace. Viewer agrees that slides are for webcast viewing only. He or she will not copy, alter, or change these webcast presentations in any way.

The goal of this webcast is to provide advanced-level CME presentations online that offer balanced, timely, scientifically rigorous, and clinically relevant information about HIV disease management. This web-based CME activity is designed for HIV specialists who are actively involved in HIV disease management.

The webcast activities are sponsored by the IAS–USA.

There is no fee for attending these webcast sessions or CME credit. Lectures are also available as Podcasts in an audio only format. Please check often for updates.

The International Antiviral Society–USA (IAS–USA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Please view the activity for the amount of credit available.
