Clinical Management of HIV




This course provides a global perspective on the diagnoses and clinical management of HIV. Learn from experts in the field, who provide real world examples of diagnosing and treating HIV and STIs in both resource-rich and resource-constrained settings, with a focus on using US-based guidelines. You'll collaborate with participants from more than 30 other countries in this course.


This online graduate-level course has video lectures, readings, discussion forums, quizzes, and assignments. 

The course is primarily offered to sites with five or more participants. A limited number of individuals who aren’t part of a site will be accepted as independent participants only if they can attend the lectures in real time. We encourage participation as a group because it provides a forum for discussing course concepts and applying them to the local setting and customs. If you can’t join a group, the discussion boards can provide that forum. 

The course is taught in English. Participants should be comfortable with written and spoken English.

You can participate in one of two ways:

  • A site is a group of participants in the same geographic location (who often work at the same organization or association) that enroll in the course together and connect face-to-face with other learners. Being part of a site helps enhance your learning by bringing the material into your own context.  In order to participate with a site, please review the "site-based participation application" to see if your organization has registered.  send questions to  The site coordinator will be responsibile for managing the site enrollment fee.  Check out the site expectations for more information.
  • You can also take the course as an individual participant.  In this case, there are no physical meetings and all your work is online.  You will still have the opportunity to conenct with other learners via discussion groups and forums.  You'll be invoiced for your enrollment fee. 


Eligible participants include medical students, medical residents, advanced nursing students, pharmacy students, international AIDS, and research training scholars. We welcome other interested clinicians who have a basic skills in taking patient histories, conducting physical exams, and giving differential diagnoses.
