This course provides the active intermediate-to-advanced clinician with a comprehensive review of the science of HIV and infectious hepatitis, as well as updates on the application of HIV, HCV and HBV therapies. For ambitious newer clinicians who want a challenge, we continue offer our New Clinicians’ Track (NCT), which provides five additional lectures; antiretroviral therapy (ART), basic pharmacology, ART resistance, opportunistic infections and IRIS.

The course lecturers are leading clinicians and researchers who are also dedicated to teaching in their areas of expertise. Dr. Diane Havlir will frame the conference in the opening plenary with her keen take on the ‘Top Ten Issues’ in HIV medicine. Dr. Susan Buchbinder will provide the underpinnings of prevention efforts and explore future efforts, followed by Drs. Hyman Scott and Jonathan Volk, who will highlight the clinical expansion and nuances of successful PrEP administration. Days 1 and 3 will be filled with important teachings in regard to effective administration of ART beginning with Dr. Monica Gandhi's talk on the ‘State of the Art of Antiretroviral Use’. A lively debate will follow on controversial ART questions including metabolic and weight complications of ART. Dr. Susan Philip will provide an update on STI’s for 2019 and Dr. Priscilla Hsue rejoins the program to bolster our knowledge base on HIV Cardiology.

Day 2 begins with Dr. Annie Luetkemeyer covering Hepatitis C care and cure, followed by Dr. Danielle Brandman covering the evolving topic of NALFD and NASH. Dr. Jenny Price will address the quandaries in HBV and cirrhosis treatment. All of these talks have case-based formats and address the issues that arise in the care of chronically infected and/or cirrhotic patients and the safe administration of efficacious therapies.

Dr. Toby Mauer will conclude the morning by revisiting the common and evolving dermatological manifestations of HIV. The afternoon opens with Dr. Deborah Cohan updating us on HIV and Reproductive Health followed by Dr. Joel Palefsky who rejoins the program this year to cover anal disease and HIV. Small group sessions will occupy the remainder of Day 2.

On Day 3 we will continue to explore how to manage complications common in HIV medicine, with Dr. Vivek Jain speaking on hyperlipidemia and Dr. Oliver Bacon will build on our STI knowledge base and bring interesting cases from the SF City Clinic and beyond. Dr. Steven Deeks will share the progress we have made toward a cure for HIV/AIDS. Dr. Kathleen (Kat) Grieco will address the evolution of available therapies and strategies in her talk on “Addiction Medicine”.

In the afternoon on Day 3, you'll be able to privately test your antiretroviral knowledge and judgment and compare your clinical choices to those of the master clinicians on our ART panel led by Dr. Oliver Bacon. Dr. Kelly Wentworth will join the faculty this year and cover Endocrinology with a focus on “Diabetes and Osteoporosis and HIV”.

This 3-day conference will provide the breadth and depth of topics necessary to effectively practice in the field of HIV Medicine.

This symposium is offered by the HIV, ID and Global Medicine Division, Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, Department of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, and the School of Medicine.

Designed for practicing clinicians; including internists, family practitioners, infectious disease specialists, pharmacists, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners, this 3-day course will focus on the practical issues in the care of patients at all stages of HIV/AIDS and infectious HCV/HBV.
