This live course will be in person at the Cobb Galleria Centre. There will NOT be a simultaneous virtual component for this course, but the on-demand activity will be available a week following the course.
This in-person course will focus on recent advances in HIV medicine, including updates from Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) 2024, new antiretroviral formulations and strategies, new approaches to HIV cure, management of substance use disorder (SUD) in people with HIV, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), overview of the Randomized Trial to Prevent Vascular Events in HIV (REPRIEVE) study, immunizations in adults with HIV, and will feature a case-based panel discussion on antiretroviral therapy.
We remain committed to closely monitoring the evolving state of the pandemic. We will ensure that our vaccination policy and mask guidelines align with the circumstances leading up to the course.
Assessment of Needs
Rapid advances in HIV disease management require the ongoing attention of practitioners involved in direct patient care. This course will address the implications of new information on strategies for the clinical management of HIV. Information will be presented through a mix of didactic lectures, clinically relevant cases, and expert panel discussions developed and led by an expert faculty of HIV/AIDS clinicians and researchers.

- Describe the most current data from recent scientific conferences, including research on new and investigational antiretroviral drugs
- Describe current basic science research on HIV cure for patients who enquire on progress
- Describe the current epidemiology, clinical presentation, prevention, and management of relevant common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in adults with HIV
- Manage substance use disorders, including opioids, stimulants, and alcohol
- Implement updated primary care recommendations, including for special and routine vaccinations
- Integrate findings from the REPRIEVE trial into the treatment plans for adults with HIV
- Key Updates from CROI 2024
- Progress in HIV cure research
- Substance use disorder management in people with HIV
- What’s new in STI prevention and management
- Cardiovascular Disease Prevention in Individuals With HIV: The REPRIEVE Trial
- Updated primary care recommendations
Conflicts of Interest
In the interest of maintaining the independence of its continuing medical education (CME) activities, the International Antiviral Society–USA (IAS–USA) requires all persons with control of educational content (eg, faculty, Scientific Leadership Board, Governance Board, and program planner) to disclose any financial relationships with ineligible companies (previously defined as “commercial interests”) that they have had within the past 24 months. Any real or apparent conflicts of interest of those parties are resolved and mitigated prior to the CME activity being delivered. Individuals who refuse to disclose financial interests may not participate in IAS–USA CME activities.
The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) defines ineligible companies as “those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.”
IAS–USA will identify and resolve ahead of time any possible conflicts of interest that may influence CME activities with regard to exposition or conclusion. Information about financial relationships with ineligible companies for the presenters and planners/reviewers will be available in the esyllabus and in the slides prior to the presentation of educational content.

- Have a solid, working knowledge of HIV disease management
- Provide comprehensive or specialty care for patients with HIV infection
- Are currently active in HIV research
This activity is also relevant to nurse practitioners, registered nurses, physician assistants, registered pharmacists, and other health professionals.
Representatives and employees of commercial companies (eg, pharmaceutical, diagnostic, medical products, advertising, insurance, investment, and communications firms) must contact the IAS–USA regarding registration procedures.

Continuing Education Credits
The International Antiviral Society–USA (IAS–USA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The IAS–USA designates this live activity for a maximum of 5.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
ABIM MOC Points
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 5.5 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity.
