Live Global Health Course Overview
Offered each May in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the course provides intensive training ideal for any physician or healthcare provider who serves a global mobile population, such as immigrants, refugees or international travelers.

This is course is designated as a diploma course by the ASTMH. Once participants complete the following components, they are qualified to sit for the biannually-offered ASTMH examination that leads to a Certificate of Knowledge in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Travelers' Health (CTropMed®).
