The Preceptorship is a postgraduate program for physicians, family practice residents and nurse practitioners. The program consists of rotations at the Immunodeficiency Clinic (IDC) and other related clinics at St. Paul’s Hospital. Preceptees participate in the primary care of HIV patients in the IDC under the direction of an experienced HIV physician. Preceptees of this program spend half of the time in the primary care clinic and the other half in elective HIV specialist clinics, the outpatient pharmacy, inpatient activities, research clinics and teaching rounds.

The Preceptorship Program is offered in collaboration with the Enhanced Skills Program at the Department of Family Practice, University of British Columbia (PG-3) and with health authorities in British Columbia.
