The next Update Course will be held July 17-18, 2020 in Crystal City, VA. More information to be posted in early 2020.

"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."
