AIDS Education

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.

About Our Training Programs

We provide educational programs to clinicians in the following formats:

  • Mini-Residencies
    Mini-residencies (clinical preceptorships) range from three days to one week and are designed to give physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and physician's assistants a full range of experience in a variety of settings, including:
    • The HIV Clinic (Visiting clinicians will shadow HIV clinicians and engage in case-based discussions at the HIV clinic of the New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Center, known as The Center for Special Studies (CSS)
    • HIV Inpatient Unit
    • HIV Conferences
    • Didactic Instruction (where participants will have one-on-one meetings with Cornell faculty each day)
    • Self-study (Clinically relevant guidelines, articles and other reference materials)
  • Trainings at Community-Based Clinics
    The CCTU as an AETC site provides bi-monthly trainings at community-based clinics that provide HIV care. These trainings include a mixture of informal lectures, case discussions and mini-workshops focusing on the acquisition of specific skills
