About the Clinic:  The ID Clinic cares for 350-400 HIV-infected patients in the Primary Care Center, which is a five minute walk from the Infectious Diseases Program labs in MR4 and Jordan Hall and the new Carter-Harrison Research Building. It also provides support to satellite clinics that care for an additional 150 patients. Clinical research conducted at the Clinic includes participation in antiretroviral protocols, protocols of the NIH Mycoses Study Group, and evaluation of therapies for opportunistic infections. The Clinic encompasses the AIDS Resource and Consultation Center, which serves half of the Commonwealth of Virginia by providing workshops, lectures, HIV testing and counseling courses, and a preceptor program.
