Global Medicine Course
Physicians and physician assistants
The Global Medicine Course is a continuing medical education activity designed to train physicians and physician assistants to plan, prepare, and execute medical support for operational missions. The primary goal is to provide students the skills necessary to anticipate, diagnose, treat, and prevent diseases that are encountered in the OCONUS setting. The course offers lectures on disease epidemiology, deployment preparation, medical intelligence sources, and several infectious disease and environmental health topics. Hands-on laboratories include computer access to medical intelligence sources, malaria and intestinal parasite diagnosis, and field epidemiology. A practical group exercise (deployment health risk assessment) is included and is a requirement for course completion.
This is a physician-directed, operationally-oriented course. As such, the primary target audience is military physicians and physician assistants directly involved in deployment health, travel medicine, preventive medicine/public health, disease surveillance, or the medical care of military forces. You must have supervisory permission to be absent from your position prior to application. Physicians and physician assistants who have taken the Military Tropical Medicine course are eligible to apply for Global Medicine after a minimum of 5 years between courses.
