Welcome and Invitation to SCTMC 2020
A very warm welcome to the official website of the 5th Annual Southern Cross Travel Medicine Conference (SCTMC 2020), which will be held at the Rydges Hotel, Melbourne, Australia, from 4-6 September 2020. Melbourne is one of Australia’s most vibrant, culturally diverse cities. It is home to the Melbourne Cricket Ground, incredible shopping, restaurants, sporting events and numerous other attractions.
Like our previous four conferences in Auckland (2016), Melbourne (2017), Brisbane (2018) and Sydney (2019), SCTMC 2020 will build on a strong platform of professional development for health practitioners working in the field of travel medicine with stimulating, succinct and novel sessions covering a range of important travel and tropical medicine topics. We will again be hosting the popular Introductory Travel Medicine Workshop on Saturday morning 5 September 2020 and the Yellow Fever Workshop on Saturday afternoon 5 September 2020.
We invite all doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other health professionals working in the field of travel and tropical medicine, general practice, military medicine, occupational health, infectious diseases and related fields to travel health throughout the region to take full advantage of all the professional development opportunities offered at SCTMC 2020. It is also an opportunity to network with colleagues, including our international and national invited speakers, and enjoy as much as possible of our fabulous host city of Melbourne.
The Australasian College of Tropical Medicine (ACTM) and the ACTM Faculty of Travel Medicine are proud to be hosting SCTMC 2020. See you in Melbourne from 4-6 September 2020.
