Department of Tropical Medicine

 

 Publication3

The Department of Tropical Medicine has a long and proud history of contributions to the fields of parasitology and tropical medicine. The department is one of the oldest of its kind in the world, and has established a strong international reputation for research in vector-borne and other tropical infectious diseases. Although its origins are based in classical parasitology, tropical medicine coursework and research programs span the breadth of public health and infectious disease problems across the globe. Students benefit from the opportunity to learn from faculty members doing cutting-edge research in a number of bacterial, viral, and parasitic diseases. Students have the opportunity to work in the field and/or labs in areas as diverse as Colombia, India, Kenya, Malaysia, Mali, Peru, Sierra Leone, and Zambia. This is an exciting time for faculty, staff, and students in the Department of Tropical Medicine as they continue the development of novel diagnostics, new antimalarial drugs, malaria vaccine and new tools for vector control.

Graduates of the Master of Public Health and Tropical Medicine program are prepared to work for the U.S. government, in private practice, or for non-governmental organizations. Graduates of the Master of Science in Public Health program are prepared to work in disease control programs or parasitology diagnostic and academic and research laboratories. Many graduates enter medical school or doctor of philosophy programs. The Doctor of Philosophy program trains professionals in field, epidemiological, and state-of-the-art laboratory studies of tropical diseases in order to assume responsibilities for tropical disease research and control programs.
