STD Case Series to be migrated to the new National STD Curriculum

It is with great excitement that we announce that our STD Case Series is becoming part of the new National STD Curriculum (http://std.uw.edu). The National STD Curriculum is a free educational resource from the UW STD Prevention Training Center and the University of Washington. The National STD Curriculum is currently comprised of STD Modules (former CDC Self Study Modules), the STD Question Bank, and a Bibliography, with future plans to implement case-focused content similar to the STD Case Series.  Free CME credit and free CNE credit are offered throughout the site.
 
The STD Modules include seven educational activities, each focusing on a specific STD topics. The STD Question Bank features interactive board-review style questions addressing the diagnosis, monitoring, and management of STDs.  Both activities offer free CME and CNE credit.
 
All content on the National STD Curriculum is based on treatment and management recommendations from the 2015 CDC STD Treatment Guidelines.
