2014 Intensive Update Course Brochure 

Updated Agenda 

Online registration is now closed. We will be accepting registrations onsite in Philadelphia. We will only accept payments by check and credit cards onsite. If you plan to register onsite, please bring a laptop with you, as we will not be providing any handouts and all slides will be available online. Power sources will NOT be available, so make sure your computer is at full power before attending the course.

ASTMH has developed this course as an update in the essential components of tropical medicine and travelers' health. This two-day meeting is designed for physicians and for all other health care providers working in tropical medicine or travelers' health. Speakers are internationally recognized authorities in the field.

ASTMH offers a Certificate Examination that assesses and recognizes individual excellence in training and knowledge. Passing the examination leads to a CTropMed® Certificate of Knowledge in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Travelers' Health. The next exam open for application will take place on November 1, 2014, in conjunction with the ASTMH 63rd Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana USA.

To receive information about the Intensive Update Course, send your name, mailing address and e-mail to Buffy Finn, Member Services Adminstrator at bfinn@astmh.org with a request to be placed on the mailing list.
