CDC and the Association of Teachers of Preventive Medicine (ATPM) announce the availability of curricular materials for teaching students and practitioners about vaccines, vaccine-preventable diseases, and vaccination practices. Materials for medical students, residents, and practicing physicians have been created through the Teaching Immunization for Medical Education (TIME) project, a collaborative initiative between ATPM, CDC, and the Department of Family Medicine, University of Pittsburgh. These materials are available in two teaching formats, multistation clinical teaching scenarios (MCTS) and problem-based learning (PBL) modules. Also available are continuing medical education (CME) self-study and traditional lecture materials with accompanying slides.

Curricular materials for nurses have been developed through a collaborative initiative for nursing education between ATPM, CDC, and the American Nurses Association. Teaching Immunization Practices (TIP): A Comprehensive Curriculum for Nurses is a modular program designed for use in schools of nursing. A computer-based, self-study program called Immunization: You Call the Shots is also available. This software program has been approved for nursing continuing education credits.

Additional information is available from ATPM, telephone (800) 789-6737, World-Wide Web site, http://www.atpm.org.* The CME modules are available on the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center web site, http://www.upmc.edu/CCEHS.
