This is a physician directed, operationally oriented course. As such, the primary target audience is physicians directly involved in deployment and/or travel medicine, preventive medicine, epidemiology, and patient care of military forces. You must have supervisory permission to be absent from your position prior to application. Seating is limited, early application is recommended.
Physicians and physician assistants who have taken the Military Tropical Medicine course are eligible to apply for Global Medicine after a minimum five (5) years between courses.
Funding: Funding is available for selected active duty Medical Corps officers and physician assistants. Selections for funding of the course are made through a priority system, and as always, the needs of the Army come first. Funding is given preferentially to those with a documented impending deployment. There are no seats allocated for other Army or other DoD health professionals, or civilians.
Continuing Education Credits: The office of the Surgeon General, United States Air Force, has designated this educational activity for a maximum of 60 hours in category 1 credit towards the AMA Physicians Recognition Award. Participation in all lectures and labs is necessary for course completion and CME credit. Partial credit is awarded only in exceptional cases (e.g., deployment) and must be approved by the course director.
