"I urge any primary care provider caring for refugees to consider the tropical medicine Update Course. This course is really fantastic and provides you with a lot of very practical information about common tropical medical problems seen in refugees. It is really a unique opportunity and has only been offered once in the past through a collaboration with the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene."
