Overview:
The medical care of HIV/AIDS patients continues to become more complex. Optimum clinical care depends on understanding more sophisticated concepts of pathogenesis and laboratory monitoring. To keep pace, we present a comprehensive review of HIV management December 13 - 15, 2007, in San Francisco, California. This course provides the active clinician, with at least an intermediate level of HIV knowledge, with a comprehensive review of the science and application of HIV therapy. Lectures are presented by a group of leading clinicians and researchers who are also dedicated to teaching in their area of expertise. Topics addressed include current dilemmas in antiretroviral therapy, the nature of the immune response to HIV therapy, complimentary medicine, common metabolic and drug toxicities, as well as HIV/HCV/HBV co-infection. This course is designed to familiarize attendees with the latest concepts in HIV science and medicine. Ample time for discussion is included. In recognizing the many challenges arising from the improvements of HIV therapy, the lunch hour on Thursday and Friday will be dedicated to focused small group sessions on relevant topics. Now in its 19th year, this symposium is well-designed for practicing clinicians including internists, family practitioners, infectious disease specialists, nurse practitioners and physician's assistants. This symposium is presented by the Division of AIDS – Positive Health Program, San Francisco General Hospital, Department of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine.
