Travel Medicine Teaching Slides, Introduction to Travel Medicine


The ISTM is pleased to present the expanded and updated 2017 version of the popular teaching presentation. The 189-slide PowerPoint slide set is now presented in four chapters:

Chapter 1:    Introduction to Travel Medicine
Chapter 2:    Travel Topics and Special Conditions
Chapter 3:    Travel Vaccines
Chapter 4:    Vector-borne Diseases 

The original authors of the slideset are Eric Caumes, MD, Professor of Infectious and Tropical Diseases at the Hôpital Pitié-Salpêtrière in Paris, France, and Bradley A. Connor, MD, Director of the New York Center for Travel and Tropical Medicine, and Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University, New York, United States.

Since its inception in 2008 the slide set has undergone major updating several times.  With each update, there is an extensive peer-review process by travel medicine practitioners from around the world.

In this new 2017 edition, Mary-Louise Scully, MD, Director, Travel and Tropical Medicine Center, Sansum Clinic, Santa Barbara, California, and Yen-Giang Bui MD, DTMH, Public Health Department CISSS Monteregie-Centre, Longueuil, Canada have undertaken an extensive update.  The 2017 edition of the slide set has been peer-reviewed by The Professional Education Committee of ISTM and other key opinion leaders of ISTM from Australia, Canada, France, United Kingdom, South Africa, and the United States of America, ensuring the international relevance and applicability of the content.

The presentations are suitable for lecturing to both healthcare professionals and lay groups.  Slides are grouped by subject area (e.g., Risk Assessment, Vaccines, Malaria, Travelers’ Diarrhea, Special Needs Travelers, Post-Travel Syndromes) for easy customization of lectures.  Material and teaching points are international in scope, allowing the presenter to elaborate on specific local dosing and availability issues.
