  • Minority Clinical Fellowship: Apply Online

    The Minority Clinical Fellowship program supports African American and Latino physicians with gaining HIV clinical experience working with medically underserved patient populations. The goal of the program is to boost the population of minority HIV physicians and strengthen the commitment to provide clinical care to HIV-infected patients in minority communities. HIVMA awards grants to support one-year of HIV clinical training to up to two fellows per year. Grants are made to the institution to support a stipend of $60,000 plus additional funding to cover fringe benefits for one year. An additional $10,000 is paid to the institution to offset administrative costs and to provide for additional educational opportunities. Applications for the 2015-2016 program are now being accepted. The application deadline is December 12.
