What we offer
Welcome to the Faculty of Travel Medicine. We are leading the way in helping to raise standards of practice and achieve greater uniformity in provision of services in order to protect the health of the traveller.
We support all travel medicine practitioners; medically and non-medically trained through our CPD approved education events and course including the world-renowned Diploma in Travel Medicine and membership exam.
Our diploma and foundation courses, augmented by regular symposia, have enabled our Faculty to become a leading centre setting standards and encouraging excellence in travel medicine in the UK and globally. We are delighted that a worldwide reputation has ensured that nearly half of the available places on our courses are taken by international students and hope that the Nordic Foundation in Travel Medicine, first run in 2012, heralds a growing international availability for faculty courses.
The Foundation Course in Travel Medicine is a six-month blended-learning course suitable for those working in the field of Travel Medicine.
The Diploma in Travel Medicine is delivered through blended e-learning over 12 months. Successful candidates on this course are automatically invited to join the Faculty as Associate Members and use the post-nominals AFTM RCPS(Glasg).
The diploma will run over a series of four 1-week residential modules. Candidates will develop the skills and knowledge necessary to provide high quality medical care in expedition and wilderness environments.
