HIV admittance
Sep 18, 2002

Can a person with HIV be declined to a medical school because he has been known to be HIV+?

Response from Ms. Breuer

HIV status is not a relevant factor, as far as I know, in admission to medical school. I have had numerous letters from HIV+ medical students. I recommend that you contact the medical school where you want to attend and ask whether there are any medical conditions that would preclude your acceptance.
