The Preceptorship is a postgraduate program for physicians and family practice residents. The program consists of rotations at the John Ruedy 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.

In collaboration with the Enhanced Skills Program in the Department of Family Practice at the University of British Columbia (PGY-3), we are pleased to offer a 3-month postgraduate training program. For a program overview on the Enhanced Skills in HIV/AIDS program click here.
