The Core Curriculum on Tuberculosis: What the Clinician Should Know (Core Curriculum) presents information about tuberculosis (TB) for healthcare professionals. This document, produced by the Centres 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
