working in the medical field
Oct 15, 2012

I have just found out I have HIV. I was considering retraining to become a podiatrist. Could you forsee any issues which I may face.

Response from Mr. Chambers

I doubt there is a problem. Depending on the rules in your state, you probably won't be able to do surgery or other invasive procedures, however, using universal precautions, you do not pose a danger to patients or yourself. You may want to try a web search for "Podiatry HIV (state you live in)" You should get some answers.

Good luck, Jacques
