Dr. Shalit's practice of primary care internal medicine has unusual demographics. Although his practice serves patients of all demographics, Dr. Shalit has a particular interest in the care of sexual minority individuals (gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered individuals) as well as in the care of people with HIV. He practices in a 3-person office along with two Physician Assistants. The clinic provides care for approximately 1,000 HIV-infected patients who comprise about 25% of the overall population served by the practice.

Objectives:

  • Observe the day-to-day operation of an independent primary care practice
  • Learn about the particular medical and psychosocial needs of GLBT individuals
  • Gain experience in the primary care of HIV-infected individuals including the prescribing and monitoring of antiretroviral therapy
