HIV Practitioner Perception of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis for Conception
Between March and May 2015, IAS–USA circulated a paper survey to 954 participants (652 of whom met our inclusion criteria of being independent prescribers and 519 of those [80%] responded to the survey) at continuing medical education advanced-level HIV courses in five locations across the US on practitioner practices and preferences of PrEP. The results were published in PLOS:

Clinician Attitudes About Commercial Support of CME
IAS–USA delivered a structured questionnaire to 1347 participants at a series of 5 live CME activities about the impact of commercial support on bias and their will-ingness to pay additional amounts to eliminate the need for commercial support. The results were published in Archives of Internal Medicine in 2011:

HIV Physician Expertise Study
Members of the board of directors and staff of the IAS–USA collaborated in 1999 and 2000 with investigators at the University of California San Francisco to study the relationship between physician experience, self-perceived expertise, and confidence in providing care in the field of HIV. They surveyed 359 physicians attending IAS–USA CME courses in 1999. The results of their work were published in AIDS Patient Care and STDs:
