The HIV Medicine Association created the Minority Clinical Fellowship Program to increase the number of African American and Latino physicians with the expertise to provide clinical care to patients with HIV in the communities most affected by HIV disease. Two one-year fellowships are awarded annually with one going to an African American physician and one to a Latino physician interested in pursuing careers in HIV medicine in the U.S. During the year, fellows manage the ongoing care of patients with HIV disease under the supervision of an HIVMA mentor. The award includes a $60,000 stipend plus funding to support benefits for one year.
Applications are being accepted for the 2012 to 2013 fellowship year, which will start on July 1, 2012. Eligible candidates will be African American or Latino physicians who are within the first five years of their medical practice and have a demonstrated interest in HIV medicine. Individuals who have completed or have been recently accepted to an infectious diseases training program are not eligible for the program.
The application along with information on current and past fellows is available online at www.hivma.org/Minority_Clinical_Fellowship.aspx. The deadline to apply for the two fellowships that begin in July 2012 is December 9, 2011.
