The University of Minnesota Clinical Tropical Medicine & Global Health Curriculum is a hybrid program: seven self-paced courses are offered online, allowing you to complete them at your own pace and from any location. The final two weeks of the curriculum is completed in person with simulations, laboratory experiences, and clinical rounds where possible. It is intended for physicians and other health care providers working in immigrant, refugee, and travelers' health and tropical medicine.

The curriculum combines lectures, exercises, and laboratory work. It includes topics on immigrant and refugee health care, disaster relief, public health, dermatology, travel medicine, and the full range of infections including parasitic, bacterial, mycobacterial, and viral. Although the curriculum has a strong emphasis on clinical work and directly applicable information, it also addresses ethical issues and cultural considerations.
