BCPhA Travel Medicine Program

In collaboration with BCPhA and Dr. Fawziah Marra, we are pleased to announce a new e-training program on travel medicine for pharmacists. This program builds on the knowledge from the basic immunization competency program, with a much greater focus on diseases and conditions related to travel. This is a 32.5 CEU CCCEP accredited program. 

The goal of this course is to prepare members to write the ISTM certification exam, and equip them to conduct pre-travel risk assessments, provide travel advice around prevention, immunization, chemoprophylaxis, and self-treatment, as well as recognize post-travel infections and refer to specialists or emergency care when necessary and  that more information on the program is available on the BCPhA website.

We have secured the same member pricing for Pharmacist Manitoba members as is available for BCPhA members. To receive member pricing, when you register, please click Pharmacists Manitoba Member under Membership Type in the drop-down menu.
