Wishard Infectious Disease Clinic (IDC)
Comprehensive, Patient-Focused Care
Goals: The goal of Wishard IDC is to improve the health and the lives of individuals living with HIV/AIDS through comprehensive, patient focused care. We choose to define success in this program as positively impacting our patients through services, education and research while remaining true to the core values of humility, compassion and respect for others.
