HIV Medicine Pathway
The University of Washington HIV Medicine Pathway in Internal Medicine is designed for residents who are strongly interested in a primary care career caring for patients with HIV either abroad, in the WWAMI region, or elsewhere in the United States. It is not generally designed to be a springboard to an ID fellowship though some graduates of the program have gone on to HIV fellowships. Instead, the goal is to train general internists who, as part of their career, want to have a significant proportion of their practice devoted to caring for people with HIV.
Residents interested in a career in HIV medicine should identify themselves as interested during the first six months of internship. Applications to enter the pathway will be due in December of the internship year. No changes to the curriculum occur in the first year. During the PGY 2 and 3 years, residents in the HIV pathway move their continuity clinic to the Madison Clinic at Harborview Medical Center. Madison Clinic provides primary care as well as subspecialty care for over 2000 patients with HIV.
