HIV: A Socioecological Case Study

Date of Review: November, 2018

This single session case-based learning experience, from MedEdPORTAL, focuses on a medically complex patient with HIV and the social determinants of health which impact his/her health. Implemented with medical students, it can be easily adapted for the GME setting. The main limitation, which was also identified by the author, is the duration of the session – only 2 hours. Depending on your institution and curriculum gaps, this can be expanded to allow for more in-depth discussion and teaching on this important topic as well as address policy and advocacy issues for patients with HIV. —Mobola Campbell, MD, NCEAS & Paul Ravenna, MD, NCEAS
