ISTM COVID-19 Online Course

The International Society of Travel Medicine’s Professional Education Committee (PEC) has put together an online PANDEMIC course of curated journal articles designed to help busy clinicians learn more about COVID-19 :

PANDEMIC Course Topics include:

  • Epidemiology
  • Clinical Course
  • Severe Disease
  • Therapeutics, and
  • Personal Protection for Health Care Workers

The PEC recognizes that health care providers are busy caring for patients, leaving little time to search the medical literature for relevant journal articles. The digital format is presented as easily digestible curated journal articles, with summaries and educational quizzes. 

Providers who want or need to learn more about COVID-19 can conveniently access the course on personal mobile devices during a short break or as time allows to sit down and work through a module.

We recognize the pandemic is moving fast and so is the medical literature. For that reason, we will update the content regularly.
