We evaluated an initiative to recruit and to educate physicians to care for persons with human immunodeficiency virus (DIV) infection in king County, Washington, and to refer patients to them through a centralized telephone referral sen'ice (the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome [AIDS]/HIV Care Access Project).
Six physicians trained in AIDS care recruited primary care physicians in clinics throughout king County; the physician cohort was monitored for behavior in accepting referrals during the ensuing year.
Of 250 primary care physicians contacted initially, 79 of 120 who met with AIDS-trained physicians were willing to accept patient referrals.
