You can get both models in the accelerated failure time
metric by specifying the -time- option in -streg- when
estimating the Weibull model.

A short discussion of these two metrics can be found
in section 4 of my introduction to survival analysis:

More can be found in:

and Yulia Marchenk (2008) An Introduction to Survival

Hope this helps,
