The STI Project’s Medical Advisory Board focuses on ensuring The STI Project’s content, products, and services uphold the highest standards of medical integrity.
Our network of medical professionals provides medical review for all clinical content. Covering the full spectrum of medicine, The STI Project’s physicians, nurses, public health experts, and patient advocates help ensure that the information you receive is accurate, evidence based, current, and trustworthy.
As one of the most trusted STI/STD content providers in the United States, The STI Project goes beyond content creation and conducts proactive surveillance for updates in the sexual health ecosystem. A team of healthcare professionals reviews our content accordingly, ensuring that existing and newly created content reflects the latest standard of care.
Here’s how it works:
- Content reviews are prompted by new clinical guidelines, drug approvals or recalls, and major practice recommendations.
- The standards of care for some conditions change very quickly, so that content is reviewed more frequently.
- Our Medical Advisory Board ensures that existing and newly created content reflects the most accurate information.
We strive to be your most trusted ally in your pursuit of sexual health and well-being.
Medical Review, provided by members of our extensive medical network, ensures that our content is accurate, current, and patient-focused. The clinicians in the network bring extensive experience from across the spectrum of medical specialties, as well as their perspective from years of clinical practice, research, and patient advocacy.
