SUNY Downstate Medical Center
SUNY Downstate Medical Center’s PA Program is currently offering a select group of its students an opportunity to concentrate their studies on HIV. The chosen HIV track students will follow the same curriculum as their fellow PA students, but will be given additional lectures specific to the presentations and management of HIV-infected patients. In addition to a more in-depth HIV education, these students will have the chance to shadow clinicians in SUNY Downstate’s HIV clinic during their didactic year and will be able to spend nine weeks of their clinical rotations working exclusively with this specific population. In addition to providing the HIV track students with an enhanced education and mentorship, we will also help to facilitate the students progress toward an HIV specialist certification.
