Hitt Scholarship

The Scott Hitt Memorial HIV Scholarship was established in the name of the late Dr. Scott R. Hitt, founder of the American Academy of HIV Medicine. Serving as a pivotal component of the Academy's initiative to address the HIV care provider workforce shortage, the program encourages medical providers to enter the field of HIV Medicine as a career specialty by providing major assistance for an intensive HIV care training experience. The program is open to physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants working in internal medicine, family practice, pediatrics, OB-GYN, and other specialties (or those providers completing other post-residency training programs). The scholarship provides funding for an intensive two-to-three month training period in advanced HIV care. AAHIVM awards scholarship funds to both the applicant and the institution where the training will take place, in an effort to increase access to qualified medical care for HIV-infected patients by facilitating this advanced training.

AAHIVM calls for applications as regularly as funding for the Hitt Scholarship Program is available.
