I need your advice.
Sep 2, 2011


I wrote a day ago, if I being a doctor, HIV positive I can continue my education of medical specialties. Or just for being HIV positive I better look for other horizons. GREETINGS FROM MEXICO I need your advice.

Response from Dr. McGowan

There is no reason to stop your studies if you are HIV infected. There are many HIV-positive doctors. As long as you take your meds and keep the virus suppressed you can have a very productive career.

Best of luck to a future colleague!
