Members of the American Academy of HIV Medicine include physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, dentists and other allied health care professionals who provide prevention services, treatment and care for people with or at risk of HIV.

Academy members provide foundational support for the Academy’s public policy and advocacy work as well as its professional development, research and education programs. The Academy is able to provide education and advocacy services at minimal or no cost thanks to the generous support of Academy members.

Joining as a member lends your voice to the chorus of other members as the Academy represents your interests to policymakers, governments, regulators and stakeholders at federal, state and local levels.

Members are at the heart of the Academy. Your membership supports the national community of HIV clinicians, a network of professionals that shares knowledge and expertise and unifies and mobilizes around the issues salient to HIV prevention and care.

The Academy offers free annual membership to medical, nursing and pharmacy students pursuing licensure and significantly discounted annual membership for residents and fellows to encourage the next generation of health care providers to make HIV prevention and care an integral part of their future practices.
