Hi, I'm new to HIV and planning to take the credentialing exam. Wanted to reach out and see if anyone has any recommendations for materials and/or links to help with preparing for the exam. The only conference I have attended in person so far was the Ryan White in San Diego last 2022. Thanks.
Hi Zosima,I think one of the best resources is the National HIV Curriculum https://www.hiv.uw.edu/ They even have question banks that will help with test prep.Hope this is helpful.Kara
Did you check for Hep B viral load? Then you would know if it is active disease.
Hi Zosima, If you're not already aware, the American Academy of HIV Medicine actually has a bunch of great CE options on their website that you can access for free and complete most, if not all, of your credentialing CE requirement! Hover over Provider Resources on the homepage of aahivm.org and then select Clinical Education Center. Best of luck,Curtis
Thanks for the information.
Thanks for the information, will look into that.
The National HIV Curriculum is excellent. As long as you register, your CME/CE is free (anyone can view the modules, but you need to register to receive credits). The modules were recently updated and provide a tremendous amount of evidence-based clinical information. It serves well for practice and for exam preparation.
Thank you for your kind words. Yes, many HIV specialist earn CE on the National HIV Curriculum's lessons and question bank topics as part of preparing for the exam and for their ongoing professional work. FYI – The National HIV Curriculum is currently being extensively reviewed and updated as we prepare for the 9/1/23 launch of National HIV Curriculum 3rd Edition. The new 3-year accreditation cycle means that people who earned CE on any unit in the current 2nd Edition, can earn CE on the updated 3rd Edition unit.
