As one of a renowned group of training sites for the federally funded Northeast/Caribbean AIDS Education and Training Center (AETC), the CCTU uses a number of modalities to train clinicians treating HIV-infected patients. Through CME credentialing of the Cornell AIDS Education and Training Series, the CCTU strives to meet not only the educational needs of clinicians serving the HIV-infected, but also to meet their certification needs.
