For 19 years, participants – mostly physicians but also nurses, physician assistants, public health workers and others – have come from around the world to attend Gorgas, the only course in tropical medicine, sponsored by an American university, that takes place in the tropics.
Check in with the UAB Gorgas Course in Clinical Tropical Medicine in Peru, where participants see different patients with different tropical diseases each day.
