Medical Management of HIV/AIDS and COVID-19 Conference

 ***This conference is a live stream event and begins on Thursday, December 10 and ends Saturday, December 12.***

Previously known as the Medical Management of AIDS/HIV and Hepatitis course (MMAH), this year we have adjusted to reflect the needs during our current pandemic and have included a special focus on COVID-19.  Presented by HIV, ID, and Global Medicine Division Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center Department of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco

This course provides the active intermediate-to-advanced clinician with a comprehensive review of the science of HIV and COVID-19 as well as an update on the application of HIV and COVID-19 therapies. For ambitious new clinicians who want a challenge, we will still offer our New Clinicians Track (NCT), which provides five additional lectures; antiretroviral therapy 101 (ART); basic HIV pharmacology, ART resistance and the topics of IRIS and opportunistic infections. All of the course lecturers are leading clinicians and researchers who are also dedicated to teaching in their areas of expertise. The COVID-19 pandemic has further amplified health disparities and the vulnerability of our patients making the need for up-to-date information about HIV/AIDS and COVID-19 essential for providing high quality care.

Transmission, diagnosis, treatment, unusual manifestations and communities at high-risk of COVID-19 will be covered thoroughly. Question and answer periods will continue each day along with a debate (Day 1) and panel (Day 3) dedicated to controversies in ART management (including PrEP). This format is designed so that you can privately test your individual ART knowledge against the experts as the conference progresses.

TARGET AUDIENCE
This course is designed for practicing internists, family practice physicians, infectious disease specialists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and pharmacists, and will focus on the breadth of practical issues in the care of people living with HIV/AIDS and COVID-19.
