The Business of Travel Medicine
What makes a travel clinic successful? What are the opportunities and challenges of acquiring a clientèle who is not familiar with travel medicine? In this Masterclass, you’ll get practical tips and advice from clinicians who have established clinics about the ins and outs of managing a clinic, how to keep a healthy bottom line, providing professional services, training frontline staff, and the importance of marketing and communications.
Travel Insurance – Reading Between the Lines
Travel insurance is an essential item. However, exclusions and limitations can affect access to medical care abroad and leave travellers stranded unexpectedly without coverage or out-of-pocket. This Masterclass features a panel discussion with clinicians who will address some of the pitfalls of travel insurance and what your patients should know when choosing a travel insurance plan. The discussion will include cases on travel and pregnancy, mental health, pre-existing conditions, and adventure travel.
Vaccinate, Don’t Procrastinate!
There is more to travel vaccines – they provide a chance to discuss a patient’s health beyond travel and an opportunity to ensure that they are up-to-date with their childhood and adult vaccinations as well. In this Masterclass, you’ll get the latest information in vaccinology and infectious diseases to enhance your knowledge and practice in travel medicine.
