ABOUT

The Saskatchewan Infectious Disease Care Network coordinates HIV & HCV preceptorship opportunities.

Mentees are matched with an Infectious Disease Specialist or HIV/HCV experienced physician. Mentees attend half or full day HIV or HCV clinics (depending on their preference).

Clinics occur at various locations across the province (Saskatoon, Prince Albert, Regina, etc.), and funding is available if travel is required.
