Welcome and Invitation to the SCTMC 2023
A very warm welcome to the official website of the 6th Southern Cross Travel Medicine Conference and the 2nd Southern Cross Tropical Medicine Conference (SCTMC) at the Hilton Sydney, Australia, from 1-3 September 2023. Sydney is one of the world’s most liveable cities with numerous attractions including the famous Sydney Opera House, many of which are around the banks of its scenic Sydney Harbour.
Like our previous conferences in Auckland (2016), Melbourne (2017), Brisbane (2018), Sydney (2019), and Brisbane (2022), the SCTMC 2023 will build on a strong platform of professional development for health practitioners working in the fields of travel medicine and tropical medicine. The SCTMC 2023 will include stimulating, succinct and novel sessions covering a range of important topics, including: Vaccine preventable diseases; case studies in tropical medicine and travel medicine; malaria prophylaxis; arbovirus including Japanese Encephalitis; rabies; Guidelines for travel medicine; laboratory diagnostics, and expatriate travellers. We will be hosting the ever-popular workshops on Practice of Travel Medicine, Yellow Fever, and One Health. Following on from our very successful inaugural Southern Cross Tropical Medicine Conference last year, we plan to expand this year’s program on tropical public health and research in the region, including workshops on spatial epidemiology and other research methods.
We invite all doctors, nurses, pharmacists, other health professionals, and students working in the field of travel and tropical medicine, general practice, military medicine, occupational health, infectious diseases and related fields throughout the region to take full advantage of the professional development opportunities offered at SCTMC 2023. It is also an opportunity to network with colleagues, including our international and national invited speakers, and enjoy as much as possible of the fabulous city of Sydney.
The Australasian College of Tropical Medicine (ACTM) and the ACTM Faculty of Travel Medicine are proud to be hosting SCTMC 2023 in association with their partners and sponsors. Hope to see you in Sydney from 1-3 September 2023.
