AIDS Clinical Conference


The AIDS Clinical Conference series is typically held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 8am–9am Pacific Time at University of Washington’s Harborview Medical Center.

This conference is one of the longest running clinical HIV conferences in the United States.  Over the last 30+ years, literally 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, housestaff 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 objectives of the AIDS Clinical Conference are to:

  • 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.
