Activity Description

The Travel and Tropical Medicine Center opened in 1984, and sees patients for pre-travel consultaion, as well as for illnesses after travel. All the faculty are certified in travel and tropical medicine. Resident physicians can spend one month on an elective rotation here, and we have an active research agenda in travel medicine. We are also a CDC GeoSentinel site, reporting disease seen in international travelers.
