Through a partnership between CDC and Medscape, we are excited to announce a new West Nile virus (WNV) clinician training course. Clinicians can register for Diagnosis and Management of West Nile Virus Infection: A Case-Based Approach for FREE through Medscape‚Äôs website and receive CME credits for completing the course. 

A recent CDC survey found that only a small percentage of clinicians surveyed could correctly identify how to properly diagnose WNV disease. After taking this training, clinicians will be able to correctly identify risk factors and symptoms as well as diagnose and prevent West Nile virus disease. As mosquito season approaches, we hope this will be a valuable tool for clinicians to increase their confidence in recognizing and reporting WNV.
