Tropical Medicine: Enhance Your Skills, Knowledge

Tropical Medicine, the study of the world’s major tropical diseases and related conditions, is rapidly becoming an important part of the today's healthcare landscape. The National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine’s diploma program focuses broadly on issues of tropical health and on clinical tropical medicine. The program itself provides a strong scientific basis for preventing, diagnosing, treating, and controlling tropical health problems.

Do you have a desire to make a difference in the lives of the world’s poorest people, help shape public policy, become part of a larger global health movement and enhance your overall knowledge?
