UCSF’s Division of HIV, ID and Global Medicine is proud to educate and train world-class researchers, clinicians and educations to lead the fight against infectious diseases in San Francisco and worldwide. We are committed to educating fellow HIV and infectious diseases clinicians, junior faculty, postdoctoral scholars, residents, students, patients and the community.
In addressing the HIV, malaria and tuberculosis epidemics, the Division has grown not only in its care of patients, but also in its understanding of disease, research design, health policy, activism, and community partnerships—all efforts needed in combination to eradicate disease. As best practices and treatments of HIV, malaria and TB expand, we passionately apply these key lessons to other infectious diseases and share them with the next generation of leaders.
We offer elective courses for residents and students of UCSF Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy. Further, we host visiting scholars from the U.S. and abroad. Our weekly HIV Grand Rounds lectures are open to the public and feature clinical case conferences and conference report-backs. Selected sessions are webcast on HIVInSite (hivinsite.ucsf.edu). Our annual Medical Management of HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis conference--taught by expert clinicians--draws regional, national and international health care professionals (cme.ucsf.edu). We host a one-year HIV clinical fellowship program for internists committed to providing HIV care to underserved populations, as well as a one-year Primary Care Addiction Medicine fellowship program for primary care physicians committed to caring for persons from urban, low-income, and stigmatized populations along the spectrum of unhealthy substance use and addiction.
