Nevada AIDS Education and Training Center

The Nevada AIDS Education and Training Center (NAETC) is a federally-funded program under the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Ryan White CARE Act as a subcontractor to the Pacific AETC, at UCSF in San Francisco. Positioned within the Office of Statewide Initiatives (OSI) at the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine, the NAETC serves the educational needs of health professionals and organizations statewide who provide services for people living with HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C.

The AETC conducts an ongoing series of educational programs facilitated by expert faculty in a variety of formats, including seminars, clinical trainings, and annual conferences. NAETC also serves as a resource to health professionals in Nevada, linking them with consultants and assisting them in accessing the most up-to-date information in order to prepare them to provide high quality, compassionate care to their patients with HIV and Hepatitis C.

Our programs serve physicians, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, dentists, social workers, and other health professionals.
