Registration for the May 13-17, 2024 UBC Tropical and Geographic Medicine Intensive Short Course is now open.

Please visit the course website for information and to register.

First of its kind in western Canada and offered since 2014, we developed the Tropical and Geographic Medicine Intensive Short Course to provide health professionals with training on a clinical approach to the evaluation and management of tropical diseases. A laboratory component in the curriculum allows learners to acquire practical laboratory skills to identify parasites important for the diagnosis of tropical disease. An important element in this course is the inclusion of a public health focus on management of tropical diseases including outbreaks.
