WHAT IS PASHNET?
PASHNET (Practitioners Association of Sexual Health & HIV: Network, Education & Training) is a not-for-profit educational charity, run by peer-volunteer doctors in the field. Comprising CMOs, registrars and GPs with an interest in or focus on sexual health, we meet at least four times a year and provide education sessions on subjects pertinent to sexual health and HIV medicine. Our goal is to ensure that those practitioners without access to employer-provided funding (e.g. TESL) or hospital-provided training are kept up to date with most recent evidence and optimal practice.
HOW DOES PASHNET OPERATE?
PASHNET has secured pharmaceutical backing to assist with training and education initiatives for its members. This grant will be used towards educational speakers, quality professional development courses for members, funding for PASHNET research, collaboration between members, and scholarships to attend conferences, education sessions and meetings. While funding for PASHNET events comes from pharmaceutical grants, education sessions are chosen independently and without influence from the backing organisation.
GETTING INVOLVED IN PASHNET
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our mailing list. Notifications of educational events, courses and scholarships will be sent out via email as early as is feasible. Please RSVP if you intend to attend one of our events. Feel free to get in touch with any suggestions or feedback, or if you would like to become more involved with the PASHNET organisational committee.
ORGANISING TRAINING THROUGH PASHNET
Please contact the PASHNET committee members if you would like to collaborate or arrange any education or training for our members. Decisions regarding the direction and sessions provided by PASHNET are decided by committee on a case-by-case basis.
In order to facilitate access to educational events for those without access to funding, PASHNET periodically offers scholarships for members to conferences and events relevant to Sexual Health and HIV medicine. Further information can be found on our scholarships page.
PASHNET is excited to announce there will be new educational events and scholarships throughout 2023. Watch this space or check out our facebook page for further updates.
