ASHM/SSHC Clinical Education Sessions

The Clinical Education Sessions have been run in collaboration by ASHM and Sydney Sexual Health Centre (SSHC) since 2018

In 2023, this project will continue to be hosted online with sessions held on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. Journal Club speakers will be expected to present remotely. We thank you for your understanding.

The sessions provide an update on important emerging developments in HIV and STIs, discuss the applicability of results from a journal article to patient population, and give opportunities for clinicians to integrate the latest evidence on a range of clinical topics into diagnosis and management strategies in their clinical settings.

There are two components: Journal Clubs and Clinical Education Seminars.

  • The Journal Club is held on Wednesdays from 9.30am to 10.20am. Presented by counsellors, registrars and nurses, it brings the latest updates in the field of HIV, sexual health, reproductive health and viral hepatitis, provides evidence-based commentaries on specified topics and is open to everyone working in the field, inclusive of clinicians and non-clinicians.
  • The Clinical Education Seminar is run from 10.20am to 11.10am directly after Journal Club. These sessions are presented by physicians and specialists and are targeted at sexual health clinicians.

The ASHM-SSHC organising committee and RACP SHM training committee strongly encourage Senior medical staff, registrar and advanced trainee participation in presenting journal club sessions. Please email ASHM Project Officer, Calvin Wu at calvin.wu@ashm.org.au to arrange a session.
