HIV Mini-Residencies and Application Information


Albany Medical Center is a member of the consortium of institutions which formed the New York/New Jersey AIDS Education and Training Center (NY/NJ AETC) in 2002. Through the NY/NJ AETC, Albany Med collaborates with the upstate academic medical centers in Rochester and Buffalo to provide HIV mini-residencies.

Mini-residencies consist of:

  • Clinical evaluation and monitoring of asymptomatic HIV positive patients to include physical examination and laboratory findings.
  • Clinical evaluation of symptomatic HIV positive patients to include treatment recommendations and referrals.
  • Didactic lectures.

At the conclusion of the training, the practitioner should be able to:

  • Discuss specialty care and treatment of HIV-infected persons.
  • Recognize the early signs and symptoms of HIV disease to improve early diagnosis of infected persons.
  • Understand the functioning of an HIV care team.

This intensive training program incorporates didactic and clinical sessions. The didactic portion includes a combination of web-based self-study and in-person lectures. Participants must submit a written evaluation commenting on their training experience, a course evaluation and case histories.  A certificate of completion is awarded upon completion of all requirements 

To be eligible, you must be a citizen of the United States and you must be licensed in the state of New York.
