The fellowship curriculum will focus on three major training areas:
Core Clinical Curriculum (clinic-based primary care, outpatient principles of HIV medicine, inpatient HIV medicine): Our goal is for our fellows to have outstanding skills in HIV primary care. Fellows will have a structured didactic curriculum based on the National HIV Curriculum. Fellows will also see and manage a cohort of longitudinal patients and have knowledge on treating co-morbid conditions like tuberculosis, viral hepatitis, and addiction medicine. Fellows will also understand how to manage critically ill patients on the inpatient service.
Research/Quality Improvement: Fellows will be paired with one or more research and/or quality mentors with a goal of completing a scholarly project or research project during their fellowship. The project will be chosen by the fellow.
Individualized curriculum: Fellows can select electives to strengthen and broaden their education based on their interests. Our fellowship offers electives in various Kaiser Permanente clinics and various community clinics.
