Are medical students ready to provide HIV-prevention counseling?


Academic Medicine 73(3): 342-346
Are medical students ready to provide HIV-prevention counseling?
The purpose of this study was to determine whether medical students in North Carolina were prepared to assess risk and counsel patients about prevention of HIV infection, and whether HIV-related experience produced better knowledge and counselling skills. 415 students completed both the patient interview and the questionnaire. Many failed to ask the patient about several HIV risk behaviours.
