Whether you've traveled before or not, living and working overseas can be challenging. Learn how best to prepare and make the most of your time internationally.

This course will prepare you to work and live overseas. It explores the epidemiology of common morbidity and mortality among travelers and examines key prevention, safety, and travel medicine principles and services to contextualize risks and maintain wellness. The course reviews applicable interventions, appropriate vaccines, and personal protection methods to prepare you to respond to expected and unexpected situations and will challenge you to examine travel health and safety priorities through case studies and discussions. The Honors Lesson will assist you with personal preparations for travel through the creation of a country-specific profile.

Reviewers say, "The course seemed to be geared to a specific audience, but there is valuable information for anyone traveling or moving overseas.
