About AETC

The mission of the AIDS Education and Training Center is to provide healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide outstanding care to people living with HIV and AIDS.  Read More


We provide physicians, dentists, nurses, mid-level practitioners (NP, PA), pharmacists and mental health workers with access to training from peer colleagues who possess expertise in the management and treatment of HIV disease.

Education and training opportunities target clinicians with low to mid volume HIV patients in their practice, and include statewide continuing education sessions, consultations with experts, and preceptorships with clinicians who have a large number of HIV patients in their practice.

The Arizona AIDS Education and Training Center also facilitates dialogue between urban and rural practitioners, and  collaborates with other Ryan White Consortia providers.
