History of UTMB AETC
Dr. Philip Keiser initiated the inaugural AETC in Texas in the late 1990s, bringing the program to Parkland Hospital to provide training for health care providers working on HIV-related issues. In 2008, Dr. Keiser moved appointments to UTMB and developed UTMB into a AETC site. Since that time, UTMB has grown to provide HIV-related training to healthcare providers across the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, and locally within Galveston, Brazoria, Matagorda, Chambers and Jefferson counties. The faculty at AETC-UTMB, and colleagues throughout the UTMB medical system, care for thousands of HIV patients, and are active in a variety of implementation and research projects related to HIV in Texas, the United States and around the world. If you are interested in attending our regular trainings, collaborating on a special project, or receiving clinical mentorship in matters related to HIV, please contact us.
