About the Course
We are delighted to present the first University of Sydney and The University of Washington Joint Short Course in HIV and STIs. Course faculty are internationally and nationally recognized leaders in their respective fields. Our course will deliver a unique blend of U.S. and Australian education through expert lectures, sharing of experience and group discussion.

In preparing the course content, we have been mindful of the multi-disciplinary approaches required to achieve effective management and control STIs, including HIV. We have therefore designed a course which can be attended in its entirety over three days or on a one-day only basis, dependent upon personal interest and relevance. Each day will therefore have a different theme and flavour. Read more.
