HIV Education Program

Through a partnership with the University of Washington/Northwest AIDS Education and Training Center (NW-AETC), Idaho State University proudly provides statewide HIV and AIDS medical trainings.  Physicians, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners,  pharmacists, and other providers are offered state-of-the-art, high quality education in the areas of acute diagnosis and treatment of HIV and AIDS.

Grant funding provides education to advance the HIV and AIDS knowledge base of rural practitioners in the areas of:  risk assessment, diagnosis of primary infection, rapid testing, medication management, and appropriate referral to specialty clinics.  Preceptorship opportunities in high-volume, northwest HIV clinics are also available.  Community-based needs assessments are conducted to customize trainings and build capacity in every district of Idaho.

Additionally, an online “HIV and AIDS 101” course is now available to health science students, providers new to HIV care or anyone generally interested in increasing their knowledge base.
