Clinical Training


The NNPTC offers a variety of training and training assistance programs:





STD clinical training courses provide up-to-date information to public and private clinicians who diagnose, treat, and manage patients with STDs and HIV. Many courses devote 50% of class time to clinical and laboratory experience under the guidance of a qualified preceptor. PTCs also offer clinical training courses in the following formats: grand rounds, teleconferencing, self study, on-site courses, and web-based courses.

Training content and priorities are based on current CDC STD Treatment Guidelines, which encompass screening, treatment, and prevention of STDs, and are informed by STD epidemiological trends and scientific advancements.
