Response from Dr. Fried

It would be unlikely that you acquired HBV without any risk factors. Repeat the HBsAg test, maybe it was a false positive. Assuming this is negative, you do not have hepatitis B. Now that you will be in the medical profession, make sure that you get the HBV vaccine series and, once completed, verify that you have develop HBs ANTIBODY.

Procrit for hepatitis?
Taking the Hepatitis C Antibody Test again
