The Society advocates and facilitates the development of new training programs in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Travelers’ Health and has established a mechanism for accrediting them. These courses, known as “Diploma” Courses, may vary considerably in format and even in broad objectives, but in order to be accredited by the Society they should cover the topic matter included on the Certificate Exam and should have an expectation of conferring on the trainee a certain degree of competence in the key subjects. Most confer a Diploma in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Travelers’ Health; some confer a different diploma or degree in which the same expectations are included.
Since 1995, the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene has offered the Certificate of Knowledge in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Travelers’ Health -CTropMed® recognizing individual excellence in training and knowledge.
Attainment of the CTropMed® requires:
