What Past Participants Said about the Program:

When I participated in the preceptorship I was the main HIV clinician at a FQHC with a low volume of HIV cases. The preceptorship confirmed for me that HIV primary care is a priority for me in my career and reinvigorated my passion for HIV care. As someone who got broad training it supplemented my professional development and engaged me in the latest science that is coming out on HIV care. It was also helpful in giving me a broader perspective of challenges I faced in my own clinic.
