This module is designed to introduce student providers to the most common sexually transmitted infections (STI) in the region and indications for screening/testing. Careful consideration of patient history, current symptoms, and local STI rates will allow the student to select efficient laboratory testing to reduce time to treatment and unnecessary testing. This module will provide a basic understanding of the timing and interpretation of serological, molecular, and microscopic screening for patients who have contracted, currently or in the past, an STI. Furthermore, appropriate collection techniques based on patient presentation will be discussed.
