HIV Primary Care Track

Categorical Internal Medicine Program at Rutgers NJMS

HIV Primary Care Track is a new track in our program. As the climate of primary care practice expands to include specialty or niche services, our training program evolves to accommodate these changes. The HIV Primary Care Track activities will provide additional experience to the overall training in Categorical General Internal Medicine. The goal of this track is to expose residents to and ensure competence in the management, preventive care, and socioeconomic challenges of patients with HIV.



Residents in this track will have rotations in infectious disease clinics and are privileged to directly follow up patients with HIV and address their unique needs.
