Travel Medicine Consultation
Travel medicine consultations are a traditional service of any tropical medicine institute in developed countries, which is the direct consequence of growing intercontinental mobility.
In our Section Clinical Tropical Medicine, travel medicine consultations are the preventive part in contrast to our diagnostic/curative outpatient clinic. This offers the following advantages:
- Patients who have been vaccinated in our section will contact us again if they return ill from their trip.
- We are a clinical partner for general practitioners (who may also attend our travel medicine courses certified by the German Society for Tropical Medicine and International Health (DTG)).
- For medical students and PhDs, these travel medicine consultations are a good exercise to discuss and practise vaccinations including technique, indication and contra-indication.
