Travelers' Clinic

The Travelers' Clinic, directed by Wilbur H. Chen, M.D., M.S., and staffed by University of Maryland School of Medicine Center for Vaccine Development internists and pediatricians, offers comprehensive health care for those planning visits overseas, especially to tropical and subtropical countries and to more temperate countries in Eastern Europe and Asia. Services include immunizations to prevent yellow fever, typhoid fever, hepatitis A, meningococcal meningitis, and other infections found in host countries.

Travelers are educated about other health risks and how to prevent them, including travelers' diarrhea and other food- and water-borne infections, malaria and insect-borne infections, altitude sickness, and local crime activity. In addition, the Travelers' Clinic offers diagnostic and treatment services for diseases and conditions contracted overseas.
