The HIV/Sexual Health Education Sessions are run in collaboration by ASHM and Sydney Sexual Health Centre (SSHC)

There are two components: Journal Club and Clinical Seminars.

  • The Journal Club is held weekly on Wednesdays from 9.30 to 10.20am. Presented by clinicians, registrars and nurses, it provides an update on the latest updates in the field of sexual health and is open to everyone working in the field of sexual health, inclusive of clinicians and non-clinicians. 
  • The Clinical Seminar is run fortnightly from 10.20 to 11.10am directly after Journal Club. These sessions are presented by physicians and specialists and are targeted at sexual health clinicians.
