Abstract

Health care workers who are HIV positive or who have AIDS are faced with unique and perplexing problems. Likewise dental students who are HIV positive present a special circumstance that demands review of ethical, legal, managerial, and medical considerations. The purpose of this paper is to describe the management considerations at the Medical College of Georgia following a recent report of an HIV positive dental student. The administration assembled a diverse team of experts for advice in the situation. This group assumed that the circumstance was a potential crisis with possible serious long-term implications. Therefore detailed planning, appropriate announcements, and careful management have been the administration's principle goal for several weeks. The key management strategies and actions are described from the time of notification of the student's HIV antibody test results through the initial testing of the patient population subgroup.
