The Program will cover a range of topics, including HIV, latent tuberculosis, skin and soft tissue infections, community-acquired pneumonia, vaccine updates, antibiotic usage and stewardship, and sexually transmitted infections. Interactive case studies and clinical decision-making exercises will facilitate the application of acquired knowledge in real-world scenarios.
