Gilead has made arrangements to pay directly for costs associated with obtaining an Academy credential for their employees.  In order to take advantage of this arrangement, please follow the steps below.  For assistance with any part of this process, please contact Director of Credentialing, Dan Ebeling, at


1. Review Eligibility Requirements

Please review the eligibility requirements for the Academy Credential that you are applying for by clicking below:

For physicians (MD, DO), NPs or PAs in clinical practice.

For pharmacists in retail or consultative practice.

For physicians (MD, DO), NPs, PAs or pharmacists in non-clinical settings such as academia, government, research or private industry.

2. Create an Academy Account

If you are renewing your credential, are an Academy member, or otherwise have an account with the Academy, please ensure you know what e-mail address you use to sign in and continue to the next step.

If you do not have an Academy account, click here to create an account.  When entering an e-mail address, we recommend that you use a personal e-mail to ensure that you always have access to our password reset options.

3. Inform Gilead of Your Intent to Register

Contact JC Andry via e-mail and indicate your intention to register.  Provide your name and e-mail address associated with your Academy Account.  JC will confirm this information with the Academy.  You will then receive an e-mail from Dan Ebeling,, confirming that you may proceed to registration.

4. Register for the Examination

Use the button below to be taken to the registration page.  First, select the credential you wish to apply for by pushing the corresponding “Submit Application” button.  You may be prompted to log in to your Academy Account before proceeding.

On the next page, you will be presented with two choices for the application.  The one labeled “GROUP REGISTRATION” should be selected automatically, but if it is not, push the purple “Select” button to select it, then press the green “Start Application” at the bottom right to proceed to the main application page.

If the “GROUP REGISTRATION” option does not appear, please contact Dan Ebeling at

Please review the application form completely and be sure to enter your CE information at the bottom of the first page.  If you already have an Academy account, some information will be filled in already.  Please double check all questions for accuracy.

When you have logged your CE and answered all questions on the application, select the green “Submit & Pay” button at the bottom right.

The next page confirms that you will also be registered for the exam itself, select “Review & Checkout” at the bottom right to continue.

Select when you would like to take the exam and what exam format you want.  If you selected the Paper exam, also enter a shipping address for the exam materials.  When you have completed all fields on this page, select “Next” at the bottom right.  You’re almost done.

The Review and Summary page summarizes the transaction.  Select “Checkout” to proceed to the final page of the application.  Click the checkbox and enter your initials to agree to the Terms and Conditions.  Under payment options, select “Bill Me” as your payment option.  DO NOT ENTER YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION.

To complete your registration, select “Submit Your Order” on the bottom right.

Selecting “Bill Me” should make the credit card information disappear from the form and allow you to continue to submit the order as below.  However, there is a known bug in our system that sometimes prevents that from happening.  If you get an error message asking for credit card information, stop and e-mail Dan Ebeling,, and he will complete the process for you.  Again, DO NOT ENTER YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION.

When your registration is complete, you will be shown a confirmation on screen.  A copy of that confirmation and additional information about your registration will be sent via e-mail.


Once you have completed the application, please allow up to 10 business days for review.  Upon completion of review, you will receive an e-mail either confirming your eligibility or requesting additional documentation.  Please follow the instructions in that e-mail.


Please note that your Academy account may show a balance due for some time after completing the registration.  This is normal and will not affect your eligibility to sit for the exam.  The Academy will bill Gilead directly for your registration fee at the close of the registration period.  Once payment is received from Gilead, this balance will be resolved.


Please e-mail Dan Ebeling at if you have any questions throughout the process.


Gilead Medical Affairs will also provide reimbursement for the Academy’s Fundamentals of HIV Medicine textbook.  To order you copy, use the button below to order directly from our publisher, Oxford University Press.  Then submit a reimbursement request through your Medical Affairs Learning and Development Department.

Note that the 2021 edition of the Fundamentals of HIV Medicine will be published on June 8, 2021.
