HIV Fellowship

HIV Fellowship

The Los Angeles Area AIDS Education and Training Center at USC, a division of the department, created one of the first HIV Fellowships open to primary care physicians in 2001. Now in partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (DHS), the second-largest municipal safety net system in the United States, offers a unique HIV fellowship training program for physicians committed to improving primary care for people living with HIV in underserved communities. This program brings together the unique strengths of DHS, USC Keck School of Medicine’s AIDS Education Training Center, UCLA’s National Clinician Scholars Program and ViiV Healthcare.

The purpose of the fellowship is to train physicians in the knowledge and skills necessary to provide expert HIV care, to be health systems leaders, and to be successful community partners in patient-centered and community-specific HIV interventions.
