Tailored TB Training Program

The Tailored TB Training (TTT) program is Curry Center’s effort to bring customized tuberculosis training to nurses, physicians, and allied healthcare workers working in the field throughout the western region of the United States.  These trainings can be 4-8 hours in length, and the topic areas will be jointly determined by the hosting jurisdiction and CITC staff.  Partnership with local faculty is encouraged, particularly for full-day trainings.  We are now accepting applications from jurisdictions within our Western Region service area for a limited number of Tailored TB Trainings to be scheduled in 2017.
