Students found to be living with HIV or hepatitis diagnosed while undergoing the medical course, in whatever year of study, shall be counselled and removed from continuing with their study. Exceptions may be considered for students found to be HIV or hepatitis positive in their final year of the medical course to allow them to complete the course and sit for the final examination. Their subsequent training as houseman and employment will follow procedures listed in section 4.
