• Physicians and other health care workers are concerned about their occupational risk of acquiring human immunodeficiency virus infection. We have developed an approach that can help health care workers estimate their cumulative risk of infection with human immunodeficiency virus. Illustrations are used to develop a score that reflects an individual's occupational exposures and social behavior. This score is then translated into the probability that the worker is infected.
