Pharmacy-Based Travel Health Services

PPA is offering this certificate program as a special activity in connection with our 2017 Annual Conference


Pharmacy‐Based Travel Health Services is an innovative and interactive advanced competency training (ACT) program that explores the pharmacist’s role in providing travel health services to patients. This application‐based activity is the first step for pharmacists interested in learning the essential skills necessary to successfully provide travel health services. There are two components to the program:

  • 6.0 hour (0.60 CEU) web-based self-study modules with case studies and assessment exam
  • 4.0 hour (0.40 CEU) live seminar with assessment exam

CE credit for this activity is being provided by the American Pharmacists Association. For more details, click here.
