Continuing medical education (CME) live courses are the core activities of the International Antiviral Society–USA. Courses include annual regional full-day CME courses and half-day CME workshops. These advanced-level courses present balanced, timely, scientifically rigorous, and clinically relevant information about HIV and other viral diseases. The activities are designed for physicians who are actively involved in viral disease management. In these programs, didactic lectures provide state-of-the-art reviews of particular topics, and case or “caselette” (case vignette) presentations use clinical models to explore selected topics and controversial or confusing issues in viral medicine.
Live courses have been the foundation of IAS–USA educational programs since 1993. Each year, our course chairs and faculty develop programs that address timely topics in HIV and viral hepatitis clinical care. Faculty include leaders in academic research and medicine, who help to apply recent research findings to the clinical context. We invite you to join health care practitioners and experienced faculty in these engaging and challenging interactive sessions.
The IAS–USA also serves as the organizing partner of the international Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections as well as the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Clinical Conference.
