New England AIDS Education and Training Center – Yale Local Performance Site
The New England AIDS Education and Training Center (NEAETC), established in 1988, is one of eleven Regional Education Centers and five National Centers, funded by Health Resources Service Administration (HRSA) with Ryan White Part F dollars and sponsored regionally by Commonwealth Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
The goal of our program is to provide education and clinical training opportunities for health care providers addressing effective counseling, diagnosis, treatment, care management of individuals living with HIV/AIDS, as well as to assist in prevention efforts. The NEAETC serves Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
The CT-Yale-LPS provides training and education for nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians, physician assistants, social workers, dentists as well as other health care providers; in collaboration with community health centers, Ryan White affiliates, hospitals and medical centers, state and local health departments, AIDS service organizations, medical, nursing, dental and osteopathic schools, and other community agencies.
Our programs enhance competency in HIV prevention and care, improving services for people living with HIV infection.
