Travel Medicine

March 17th, 2023 - March 16th, 2026
1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit Hours


Today on MedNet21, we're going to discuss Travel Medicine. Learners should be expected to learn how to provide general pre-travel counseling to patients of all ages and medical conditions. Returning travelers have additional risks compared to an average person from the community. While routine illnesses are still common, medical providers need to be aware of potential additional risks and exposures in the returning traveler as some diseases can progress rapidly and lead to significant morbidity and mortality. Learners will be able to evaluate the returning traveler with an appropriate differential diagnosis and a detailed history, exam, and initial workup. Learners will also be able to recognize when expert consultation and/or higher level of care is needed.
