Learning outcomes

The course aims to guide the student in the knowledge of some of the main medical problems of the tropical and sub-tropical countries. With clinical examples, we will introduce the logic of the practice of medicine in situations of particular scarcity of diagnostic and therapeutic resources. Some health problems that may occur in the international traveler and those related to the recent migratory flows from these geographical areas will also be addressed. These topics will be dealt with in part with classical lectures through the projection of slides and / or videos, in part with interactive teaching.
