Program Overview

Medical students and family practice residents can apply for a clinical elective in HIV/AIDS as part of their clinical education and training.

The JRC provides outpatient primary care to HIV positive patients with an interdisciplinary approach. Trainees will participate in the primary care of HIV patients under the direction of an experienced HIV physician.
