Online Advanced HIV Management Course for Doctors

About the course

The Southern African HIV Clinicians Society has taken over the management of a two-week intensive Advanced Clinical HIV Management Course from Wits RHI. This course has been running since 2003 and is broadly recognised as the course that supports the Diploma in HIV Management through the Colleges of Medicine SA. Wits RHI have entrusted the Society with converting the course to e-Learning. We have updated and refined the content with the country’s experts in HIV management, to deliver the most up-to-date information in a digital, blended learning environment. Currently, this course is for doctors only, but the Society is committed to developing a portfolio of courses for all healthcare workers over time.
