(It will return to the University of Washington’s Harborview Medical Center once in-person trainings resume.)

This conference is one of the longest running clinical HIV conferences in the United States. Over the last 30+ years, hundreds of speakers from around the country and the world have delivered lectures on a wide variety of HIV topics from prevention and vaccine research to antiretroviral therapy, drug resistance, and the adverse effects of HIV treatment.

The grand rounds like conference is popular among regional and national HIV providers, University of Washington (UW) faculty, house staff, and public health staff. The Harborview Medical Center’s Madison Clinic (the largest provider of HIV care in the Northwest), the University of Washington Center for AIDS Research (CFAR), Treatment Research and Expert Education (TREE), and the MWAETC sponsor the conference.

Nurses may earn 1.0 CNE contact hour if they complete the evaluation after the live event or register and attend the live webinar and complete the evaluation by Friday noon after the conference. The ACC is also approved for 1.0 AAFP Prescribed Credit. 

The objectives of the AIDS Clinical Conference are to:

  • Educate regional HIV providers, students and investigators on the latest therapies and research findings reported in the literature and presented at scientific meetings;

  • Provide a venue where regional HIV providers and the HIV research community can congregate to discuss newly recognized trends in HIV disease and treatment;

  • Provide a forum for local HIV providers and researchers to interact with international colleagues with the goal of fostering collaborative HIV research and training projects.
