Graduates of the fellowship are working as leaders in HIV care throughout the US. Dr. Navid Roder, the first fellow, is now at the University of Pennsylvania Department of Family Medicine providing HIV leadership in the Family Medicine residency clinic. Recently he took on a HIVMA HIV fellow and will be mentoring her through the 2018-2019 academic year.
Dr. Emily Colgate continues to work at a FQHC in Spokane, WA caring for a large population of HIV patients. Dr. Amanda Oropeza is serving HIV populations in an urban CHC in San Francisco, and Dr. Carrington Koebele is doing the same in Baltimore, MD. All are fulfilling the mission of the fellowship to use their expertise to provide HIV services and training in interdisciplinary, community-based patient-centered medical homes. The most recent fellows, Babafemi Onabanjo, MD and Benjamin Alfred, NP are both staying on at FHCW, where they will become the Co-Assistant HIV and Hepatitis Program Directors. Following completion of his fellowship, Dr. Onabanjo will travel to Monrovia, Liberia for a month where he will work at the ELWA Hospital and Family Medicine Residency. Dr. Onabanjo will see both inpatient and outpatient HIV patients, bolstering his knowledge of opportunistic infections and the care of persons living with HIV in resource-limited settings.
