The Clinician Consultation Center provides clinicians of all experience levels prompt, expert responses to questions about managing HIV/AIDS, perinatal HIV, pre-exposure prophylaxis, and bloodborne pathogen exposures. We provide online and phone-based consultation in service areas including testing and prevention, treatment, and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP). All of our services are cost-free and confidential. Our services are for U.S.-based healthcare providers only.
Our Mission
The Clinician Consultation Center’s mission is to improve patient health outcomes by building the capacity of healthcare providers through expert clinical consultation and education.

Our staff clinicians are practicing physicians, nurses, and pharmacists

A committed staff of practicing clinicians from the University of California, San Francisco provide our consultation services. The Center is a part of UCSF’s Department of Family and Community Medicine at San Francisco General Hospital, institutions that have been leaders in providing HIV/AIDS services since early in the epidemic.

We have more than 20 years of expertise consulting on HIV/AIDS care

Since 1993, the Center has supported primary care doctors, nurse practitioners, OB/GYNs, infectious disease specialists, RNs, LVNs, physician assistants, and more through direct consultation from leading clinicians and through provision of up-to-date knowledge on HIV care. We’ve seen great improvements as care has evolved, and we’ve worked to continually adapt to the treatment and knowledge needs of our community.
