The authors of this interactive CD-ROM have developed a "mini-fellowship" on the care and management of patients with HIV infection and AIDS, advertised as the "ideal HIV/AIDS continuing education experience for all health care providers." They use interactive CD-ROM technology, which provides a "fully interactive multimedia experience," which is user friendly. A first rate faculty provides a broad overview of HIV infection, including not only clinical care but also didactic lectures on the basic aspects of HIV epidemiology, natural history, biology, and opportunistic diseases.
