The programme will offer in-depth training for clinicians committed to careers in HIV clinical service delivery in sub-Saharan Africa with the aim of strengthening access to high-quality services for sub-Saharan Africa populations, with a client-centred service delivery approach.

  • Terminal research degree as a medical doctor (or equivalent)
  • Minimum of two years’ clinical experience
