Objective

To offer a learning experience at ACTHIV that specifically targets providers who are in training or who are new to HIV medicine.

Design
  • New HIV Providers are matched with experienced HIV clinicians from the ACTHIV Conference Planning Committee
  • Mentors will share key takeaways from the day’s sessions
  • Mentors and mentees will break into small interprofessional groups to discuss cases where learners can apply what they learned that day to clinical scenarios
Target Audience

Approximately 30 Infectious Disease, Internal Medicine and Family Medicine physicians, NPs, PAs, nurses, pharmacists, and case managers
who are new to HIV medicine or in training.
