Nebraska Tropical Medicine Course

Has the impending New Year and the specter of license renewal left you clamoring to meet continuing education requirements? Does your clinical practice serve people traveling to or arriving from the tropics, or are you planning to do so? Are you booked to do work in the tropics, or exploring the idea of doing so? Then, the Nebraska Tropical Medicine Course may be for you!

This familiarization and refresher course has an expanding list of activities for physicians, nurses, and other allied health professionals seeking to better expand or renew their awareness of tropical medicine issues. With accreditation through the University of Nebraska Medical Center, there are currently over 6 hours of continuing education credits and Maintenance of Certification credit (ABIM, ABPath and ABPeds) available, and the content is growing. Orient to the context, learn about malaria and enteric disease, review cases, and join the group.
