|I AM A DOCTOR AND PLANNING RESIDENCY
Apr 13, 2008
I am a doctor from africa and have passed usmle exams. I am HbsAg positive for 6 years. I am a healthy carrier. can I persue residency in internal medicine or family medicine? Do I need to disclose my status? If yes to whom?
Response from Dr. McGovern
Applications for residency will ask you questions about your personal health. It is there where you will disclose this issue which is important to your own health and important for patient care. If you are an inactive carrier, I would expect additional testing will be performed to be certain that you have no virus in your blood.
