Welcome to the HIV Clinical Leadership Program
An Opportunity to Serve
More than 1.2 million people are living with HIV in the U.S. with more than 35,000 new infections each year. After 40 years, the HIV epidemic continues to devastate our communities, disproportionately impacting vulnerable populations.
The HIV Clinical Leadership Program is an established, postdoctoral fellowship aimed at developing HIV specialists who are knowledgeable and committed to addressing the health inequities our patients face at an individual and systemic level. We have a proven track record of placing fellows in competitive leadership career positions throughout the United States.
Up to $150,000 in student loan repayment for qualifying graduates.

Training & Education.
Over 20 year track record of clinical excellence in HIV speciality fellowship training. Fellows train at the high-volume outpatient HIV clinics of LAC+USC Medical Center with experienced Family Medicine and Infectious Disease trained faculty. They rotate in community-based HIV clinics, correctional settings and the inpatient Infectious Disease service, learning HIV primary and specialty care as well as the management of complications, co-morbidities and co- infections associated with HIV. Additional training in Addiction Medicine and Gender Affirming Care is incorporated into the curriculum to meet the needs of our diverse patient population and prepare fellows to provide excellence in standard of care practices.
Faculty and research staff support will be available to provide direct clinical and research mentorship and support. Fellows are paired with strong clinician mentors to match areas of interests longitudinally throughout the two-year program. Mentorship highlights include:
Serving Underserved Populations.
Our patient-centered training program is located within one of the largest safety-net systems in the US, with a strong commitment to serving underserved populations. Our alumni have a strong track record of continued commitment to serving vulnerable patient populations after graduation.
In partnership with the UCLA National Clinician Scholars program, fellows will gain knowledge in health policy, research methods, community-based participatory research, pressing issues in healthcare, and executive leadership skills. Under the guidance of expert clinical research mentors, fellows will complete a scholarly project in an area of interest prior to graduation. Fellows are encouraged to demonstrate acquired knowledge, skills, and scholarly results through presentation at professional meetings or publication in scientific/academic journals.
We have a proven track record of placing fellows in competitive leadership careers. Below are examples of leadership titles obtained by recent alumni:
