Kentucky AIDS Education & Training Center


KY AETC’s purpose is to educate, train, and provide information on HIV/AIDS to medical professionals throughout Kentucky, including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, oral health providers and pharmacists. As a member of a multi-state HIV/AIDS education and training consortium, we have access to teleconferencing and telemedicine, HIV/AIDS specialists, the most recent AIDS data and treatments, and a warmline for providers to access with questions concerning specific cases. All services are free to providers. Our website describes all of the services that we provide as well as valuable educational resources and links to other HIV/AIDS websites.


KYAETC specializes in tailoring a workshop that meets the specific needs of your agency, hospital, health district, or other group of health care workers, based on careful needs assessment. There is rarely any charge for training. Continuing education credit is not available for these specially-designed workshops. Workshops can be planned for as few as 15 learners.

For more information, click here, or contact Janet Gilligan at University of Kentucky.


Preceptorships offer one-on-one training for medical professionals who are new to HIV medical management, providing a chance to see patients alongside an experienced HIV clinician.

Preceptorships are available for 1 day or more, at the convenience of the learner and instructor. There is no charge for this activity.  In most cases, learners pay their own travel expenses. Limited assistance with travel expenses may be available for high-priority learners.

The consult lines are a valuable asset to be used by any healthcare provider wishing to gain one-on-one consultations, patient specific information, materials on an HIV/AIDS topic, or references for other assistance. The warmline is used to record callers' messages and the calls are returned by an infectious disease professional. The UK MD Consult line is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. When calling the line ask for the Infectious Disease physician on call.


Organizational technical assistance is available to clinics/practices/organizations to  build local capacity in training and clinical care. It may range from a single training event or consultation or may form a long-term relationship with the KYAETC and a clinic or agency. Goals of technical assistance include providing resources, guidance and assistance to improve HIV service delivery and performance on an organizational level. Our technical assistance program can assist with change in organizational infrastructure and service delivery.
