Learning Center & Alabama AETC



Advancements in medical science have been as much about the innovation of providers as it has been about laboratory research. The same can be said for the critical nature of patient care in treatment adherence of HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C and other life-threatening illnesses.

The MAO Learning Center provides wellness courses for MAO clients and professional development for the healthcare community. The Center is home to Alabama AIDS Education Training Center (Alabama AETC), a joint initiative with Southeast AIDS Education and Training Center (SE AETC) at Vanderbilt University’s Comprehensive Care Clinic. As the only SE AETC site managed by a non-academic CBO, Alabama AETC is uniquely qualified to develop and support professional and practice-based training programs focused on HIV care and prevention in our region, particularly in the areas of rural health and telemedicine.

Onsite workshops, online courses and webinars expand the knowledge base for providers working in medical and behavioral health on  the latest treatment models, as well as social, cultural and environmental influences on the care of HIV, Hepatitis C, Diabetes and other life-threatening illnesses.

Alabama AETC can provide or connect you with in-person and online trainings, conferences, learning series, skill-building workshops, preceptorships and internships, clinical consultation, and technical assistance. Alabama AETC welcomes both practicing and student healthcare professionals with all levels of HIV experience. You will find upcoming events listed under the events section of this site. You may also wish to explore the collective offerings by Southeast AIDS Education Training Center.
