    The Core Curriculum on Tuberculosis: What the Clinician Should Know (Core Curriculum) presents information about tuberculosis (TB) for health-care professionals. This document, produced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Tuberculosis Elimination (DTBE), updates the 2000 Core Curriculum. It is intended for use as a reference manual for clinicians caring for persons with or at high risk for TB disease or infection. In addition, it was designed to be useful in developing educational programs. It is not meant to provide detailed answers to all public health or clinical questions about TB, nor is it meant as a substitute for any specific guidelines. It is anticipated that new guidelines will be published at future dates that will supersede information in the Core Curriculum, and these new guidelines will be posted on the CDC DTBE website: www.cdc.gov/tb.

    An update on TB for clinicians is critical today. Research to find new treatment regimens and more effective use of current ones continues as multidrug-resistant and extensively drug-resistant TB cases challenge the public health community. The increased complexity of TB and HIV co-infection has required updated guidelines for prevention and treatment. Testing, diagnosis, and patient management and public health practice have also been revised.

    The audience for this course includes clinicians who are caring for persons with or at high risk for TB disease or infection. The curriculum is designed in a self-study format so that each person can work at his or her own pace.
