What is Travel Medicine

Travel Medicine is devoted to the health of travelers who visit foreign countries.


It is an interdisciplinary specialty concerned not only with the prevention of infectious disease during travel, but also with the personal safety of travelers and avoidance of environmental risks.


Those who practice in this field come from a variety of specialties. The International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM) has developed a body of knowledge and standards for its practice. We try to adhere to them. A travel consultation is designed to define the health risks of travel, educate the traveler, and provide the appropriate vaccinations, medications and reading materials to minimize the risks. It is an individualized process which is constantly changing.
