About the Seminar in Tropical Medicine
The seminar course offered by the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine is comprised of weekly lectures from faculty and subject matter experts, representing Texas Medical Center institutions, on various topics in tropical medicine. The coming spring 2014 offering will focus on tropical medicine abroad particularly in low-resource settings. The objective is to present major advances, gaps and constraints for identifying, preventing, treating and managing neglected tropical diseases that disproportionately afflict "the bottom billion," the world's poorest people and to discuss innovative and effective solutions to these challenges. It is anticipated that this course will attract graduate and medical students from Baylor College of Medicine, as well as students attending Rice University. This year we also open this seminar course to the Houston-wide community to attract healthcare providers and public health officials interested in advancing their knowledge of tropical medicine.
