• Services
  • People who are just entering the field tend to look to textbooks of travel medicine, which are a good start, and soon learn how to use the key references that are used day-to-day, which include subscription services, the CDC Health Information for International Travel , and other material generated in one's own country.

  • activities
  • Activities which comprise this program include, but are not limited to: passing an examination, educational programs and products, writing, editing and reviewing publications, teaching, research, clinical work and other professional development in which travel medicine practitioners participate. (istm.org)
  • take
  • One can take a superficial view of travel medicine (what vaccines or prophylaxis are recommended for a certain destination), or a more nuanced view (what is the real risk, how was that determined, how long are they going, what will they be doing, what are the consequences of getting ill). (istm.org)
  • Gradually it reaffirmed for me that there is a wealth of subtle knowledge in travel medicine that can take a lifetime to master. (istm.org)
  • regional
  • The regional meetings provide up to date information more focused on regional issues, and offer travel medicine professionals the opportunity to meet with their nearby colleagues more regularly. (istm.org)
  • Most often Regional Meetings are held in conjunction with local, national and regional travel medicine societies, and can be instrumental in strengthening the local societies. (istm.org)
  • I see this when I meet fellow travel medicine practitioners at the CISTM meetings and regional meetings. (istm.org)
  • Program
  • Since the program became effective in 2011, travel medicine professionals who were awarded certificates prior to 2011 are encouraged to consider participating on a voluntary and not mandatory basis. (istm.org)
  • world
  • I can't overstate the value of personally meeting travel medicine practitioners from all over the world, asking them questions about what they do, and starting to explain to newer people what you have now learned. (istm.org)
  • People
  • People new to travel medicine come to meetings and are suddenly exposed to details and explanations that they never knew to even ask about. (istm.org)
