What We Do
We provide virtual training events, technical assistance, clinical tools, and STI clinical consultation via the STD Clinical Consultation Network to support providers in addressing the rise of STIs in their communities. We focus on complex issues in patient care including: evolving PrEP modalities, congenital syphilis management and prevention, and complications of gonorrhea and chlamydia.
Who We Are
The CAPTC Clinical Program has been funded for over 30 years by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and is part of the National Network of STD Clinical Prevention Training Centers. Our faculty consists of physicians and nurses who are subject matter experts in the field of sexual health with extensive academic, clinical, and public health experience in STI control and response.
CAPTC also has a long-standing partnership with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) STD Control Branch to deliver training on STI diagnosis and treatment to priority counties experiencing high rates of STIs. CDPH and CAPTC regularly collaborate on issuing statewide guidance related to STI screening/treatment and creating co-branded job aids and educational materials for providers throughout the state.
