This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) solicits applications for the integration of the National HIV Curriculum (NHC) e-Learning Platform into the education and training curricula of multiple health professions institutions with an emphasis on medical, nursing, and pharmacy programs, including graduate education/residency programs.  The project must include activities to help train and orient health professions faculty on how to integrate the NHC into their existing programs and curricula.  This integration must result in training offered to health care professionals for credit towards a health care degree or certificate.  The project will address national shortages in the HIV clinical workforce through integration of the NHC into the curricula of participating accredited health professions programs.  Recipients will collaborate with health professions programs to incorporate the NHC to help educate and train clinicians on the delivery of HIV care. Integration of the NHC into the curricula of a select group of accredited health professions academic and training programs will increase the knowledge, skills, and overall competence of health professionals to treat people living with HIV (PLWH).  Documenting and disseminating practices for effective integration of the NHC into multiple health professions academic and training programs will assist other programs seeking to enhance student knowledge of HIV care.  This will increase the number of competent HIV health care professionals in the workforce and advance the national goals to end the HIV epidemic.  This project will build upon best practices and lessons learned from a variety of curriculum integration efforts including those garnered from multiple AIDS Education and Training Center (AETC) programs such as the Nurse Practitioner/Physician Assistant (NP/PA), the Graduate Medical Education (GME), and the Interprofessional Education (IPE) programs.  The ultimate goal of this initiative is to enhance the quality of HIV education and training at multiple health professions institutions and thereby increase the number of health care professionals who can competently care for PLWH.  The NHC is an excellent tool to help provide the high quality, easily accessible, up-to-date training that is vital for addressing HIV educational needs of health professional trainees.    This NOFO will fund up to two organizations for a 4-year project period to address national shortages in the HIV clinical workforce through integration of the NHC into the curricula of participating accredited health professions programs and train faculty on the use of the new integrated curriculum.  Successful applicants will collaborate with the University of Washington, the developer of the NHC, to update and enhance the NHC annually as a result of lessons learned throughout the period of performance and as required by the standard of HIV care.  The AETC Program previously supported the development of the NHC through collaboration with the AETC National Coordinating Resource Center (NCRC) and the University of Washington.   Successful applicants must be able to demonstrate the ability to collaborate with accredited health professions training programs to integrate the NHC into multiple curricula by year 2 of the project with documentation of effective HIV care and treatment curriculum integration practices by year 4.
