American Academy of HIV Medicine
SUPPORTING THE HIV CARE PROVIDER AND THE PROFESSION
“I firmly believe the Academy is one of the more appropriate organizations for me to join in order to reach my long-term professional goals and to make a meaningful difference in HIV disease.”
“As a member I could finally be part of an organization devoted to my specialty as an HIV care provider rather than a nurse. The Academy acknowledges the vital role that non-physician providers play in the delivery of HIV care.”
“I joined the Academy as a way to stay updated in the world of clinical care for people living with HIV.”
“I joined the Academy to feel a part of a community that supports and shares ideas. I wanted to share my loud voice to advocate on the larger regional and national scale.”
“Treating a disease that is complicated medically and socioeconomically takes a team approach and I feel the Academy is committed to fostering the health care team in fighting HIV.”
“I enjoy feeling connected to the community of HIV-treating providers, and greatly appreciate the advocacy and national solidarity that the Academy provides, both for patients with HIV and HIV Specialists.”
“I believe in the strength of membership with it comes to advocacy power for change and growth of the profession. I believe in the Academy’s organizational mission; to promote excellence in HIV care through advocacy and education.”
“For me, advocacy from within a community of peers to address common concerns and problems was the main thing that drew me to the Academy. Collectively we can recognize issues that impact us broadly and strengthen our voice in being heard to affect change for the benefit of our patients and our colleagues.”
“I joined the Academy to try to make a difference and improve care for our patients with HIV and to provide more support to HIV medical providers.”
“As a physician assistant, I did not have a residency or fellowship as physicians did. PAs are trained in all areas. Because of this, I felt the need to be credentialed as an HIV Specialist by the Academy, which holds the standard in HIV care in the U.S. As a member, I am able to connect with other like-minded colleagues who have the same drive and passion as myself. The Academy is great for fostering this kind of connection.”
