No. HIV is not like the lu or a cold. It is not passed through casual contact or by being near a person who is infected.
You can only get HIV if infected blood, semen, vaginal luids, or breast milk gets into your body
No. But it is important to know that you can be infected by a single exposure to HIV-infected blood, semen, or vaginal luids. Whether a person becomes infected after being exposed to HIV depends on how the virus enters the body and the amount of virus that enters the body.
This is a very important question to answer. Most physician specialties require brilliance in the heat of the moment. Highlight your ability to rise to the occasion when it is necessary.
Most employers are going to be impressed by institutions with names that they recognize. However, if you did not get your training from a highly recognized school or facility, highlight the accolades that it has as well as why you chose to pursue that institution.

No. Studies have shown that mosquitoes and other insects do not pass HIV to humans.
When an insect bites a person, it does not inject its own blood or a previous victim's blood into the new victim. It injects only saliva. Unlike the germs that cause malaria and other diseases spread by insect bites, HIV does not reproduce (and therefore cannot survive) in insects. So, even if the virus enters a mosquito or another sucking or biting insect, the insect does not become infected and cannot pass HIV to the next human that it feeds on or bites.
Resoundingly, our clients expressed their distaste with physicians saying that they went into medicine for the pay. No employer wants to hire a money-hungry physician.

No, because there is the probability of re-infection or cross-infection. In other words, there are sub-strains of the virus and you can pass these to each other and worsen each other's health. An HIV+ person, can become re-infected with a different drug-resistant strain (type) of HIV, if he / she does not practice protected sex
