This course is a variety of presentations intended for tropical medicine and global health professionals who work with patients who are persistently at-risk, or those with episodic risk (such as travelers) of contracting tropical diseases. This series is comprised of asynchronous and interactive sessions designed to familiarize and provide refresher opportunities. This series will also include emerging infectious diseases that are sparked in the tropics.
This course is intended for physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals who care for patients in or from the tropics, or who might experience a health risk traditionally associated with the tropics.
