This activity will cover the importance of addressing topics of local and global significance for providers practicing medicine today. Our nationally recognized speakers will present on the topics of Graduate Medical Education and physician activism in the era of Covid-19, antimicrobial stewardship, STI, HIV and Central Nervouse Infections.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for primary care physicians, specialty physicians, pharmacists, residents, medical students, physician assistants, nurses, and nurse practitioners.

Statement of Need

Due to the Covid pandemic, less bedside teaching and in-person education resulted in a decreased focus on traditional medical topics. Providers lack  knowledge of the updated CDC Sexually  Transmitted Infection  (STI)  guidelines. Providers  lack knowledge of the newer anti-retroviral treatments available for HIV. 

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity learners should be able to:

  1. Faculty providers will be better equipped to teach graduate medical education learners.  
  2. Describe STI guidelines and how to apply treatment of patients with STIs.  
  3. Discuss anti-retroviral treatments and other novel medications and how to apply them when treating HIV
  4. Identify how to effectively diagnose CNS infections and initiate effective treatments more rapidly.
  5. Explain how to convert IV antibiotics to oral antibiotic therapy.
