Tulane Doctors – Travel Care – Fertel provides pre-travel consultations and vaccines to international travelers. During your consultation we will teach you about diseases you might encounter, and make sure you get the right vaccines. We prepare personalized travel health plans, not just suited to your destination, but tailored to your specific health needs to keep you healthy during your travels.
Why is travel care necessary? Up to half of those who travel to countries with limited resources will develop some health condition. However, many of these can be prevented. Our dedicated physicians will provide you with information on preventing food-borne illness, illness spread by insects, safety concerns, and other specific issues that might be a risk for persons with underlying conditions and in particular destinations. Also, we will provide advice and medications to treat travelers’ diarrhea, reduce the chance of altitude sickness and other conditions.
Our physicians provide the highest quality travel care while leading the way in graduate medical education and clinical research. Additionally, the doctor treating you is also teaching tomorrow’s medical leaders and finding answers to global health issues. We offer convenient clinic locations throughout the region in a number of clinical specialties.
