The Seattle PTC provides training to health care providers in Washington, Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and Minnesota on the prevention, diagnosis, management, and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases.

The Seattle PTC is one of eight regional training sites funded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In operation at the University of Washington since 1979, the Seattle PTC leads the way in providing world class STD/HIV training to health care providers in the North Western United States. As a member of the National Network of STD/HIV Prevention Training Centers, the Seattle PTC is affiliated with national and international programs involved in STD and HIV prevention, care, and research. The Seattle PTC is associated with the Public Health-Seattle & King County STD Clinic at Harborview Medical Center. Our teaching faculty are members of the University of Washington School of Medicine and personnel of PHSKC - many are leaders in HIV and STD related research. A program of the UW Center for AIDS and STD, the Seattle PTC also partners with health departments in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington to provide training and resources in each state.

The Seattle PTC's education and training programs are specifically designed for physicians, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, laboratorians, health educators, and other health care professionals. Clinical and laboratory training programs include in-person lectures and didactic courses, hands-on clinical and laboratory experience, clinical consultation on all aspects of managing patient care, and Internet-based training and educational resources.
