As a med student in an urban area (and most likely anywhere) you are likely to treat at least one patient with HIV/AIDS. You may even have the opportunity to rotate through a clinic that exclusively treats HIV patients. In all cases you should be familiar with where to look to get a handle on the disease, the epidemic, and the drug regimens used to manage HIV.
