HIVMA is pleased to announce the selection of 16 medical students from across the US and Canada who will receive funding for clinical learning and research projects through the HIVMA Medical Student Program. The program will support work in local and overseas settings that includes projects as diverse as an evaluation of risk factors for tuberculosis among HIV patients, an analysis of microeconomic benefits of treating HIV, and the development of a decision making tool to guide clinicians through treatment choices in patients with HIV drug-resistance. The students will receive mentorship from HIVMA members at their institutions, free membership to HIVMA and the Infectious Diseases Society of America, and a stipend of $3,500 per year for up to three years.
“We’re proud to support the work of these students whose commitment to improved care and understanding of HIV will be critical to continuing progress in controlling the impacts of the epidemic and helping patients live long and healthy lives,” said HIVMA Chair Dr. Carlos Del Rio. “These medical students represent the future of the HIV/ID workforce, and we are excited by the talents and enthusiasm they bring to the field of HIV/ID.”
