We are VIPTC

Virginia Infection Prevention Training Center

The Virginia Infection Prevention Training Center (VIPTC) was created to meet the growing needs of healthcare and congregate care facilities in the areas of Infection Prevention and Control (IPC). Our goal is to work collaboratively with healthcare facilities and public health agencies in order to strengthen infection prevention and control expertise by providing universal IPC training to frontline providers. Education and training on these principles are essential to building capacity in facilities and state agencies in Virginia and beyond.

Content posted within VIPTC is made possible by funding from the Healthcare-associated Infections and Antimicrobial Resistance (HAI/AR) Program within the Virginia Department of Health.
