The UTMB-CMC Section of Clinical Virology oversees clinical care for TDCJ offenders infected with HIV and/or the hepatitis C virus (HCV). Core Value: To provide complete medical services to the patient population we serve.Clinical Virology is divided into an HIV team and an HCV team. In addition to clinical care, Clinical Virology also provides education through its AIDS Education and Training Center (AETC) grant. The AETC sponsors multiple CME/CNE programs throughout the year. The HIV Minifellowship is an AETC-sponsored program that will be held in Galveston this coming November.
Because HIV and HCV are complicated disease processes, Clinical Virology
has developed the HIV Evaluation and Treatment Pathway and the HCV
Evaluation and Treatment Pathway to provide guidelines for the care of
patients infected with these viruses.
