TravelHealth101: Our mission is education

Travel Health 101 (TH101) is dedicated to the provision of basic travel health information for healthcare providers and international travelers.  TH101 provides resources to lessen the burden and help new clinics get started, in addition to providing basic information for the traveler.

International Respiratory Infections Society

The International Respiratory Infections Society (IRIS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and supporting international education, collaboration, and research.

TravelHealth101 Provider Course

This 10-module course takes learners from a basic introduction of international travel counseling, through the nuances of traveling to individual countries around the world, to a review of vaccines and travel-related documentation.

TravelHealth101 Patient Videos

If your clinic prefers options to scheduling in-person office visits and wants to provide patient education electronically, these seven patient information videos may provide you with that capability.

Getting Your Travel Clinic Started

As international travel returns to pre-pandemic levels, you may be interested in beginning an International Travel Clinic or providing those services in your existing clinic. We provide documents and other resources to assist in the development of your Travel Clinic.
