MEMBERSHIP OF THE FACULTY OF TRAVEL MEDICINE

General membership of the Faculty of Travel Medicine is open to all members of The Australasian College of Tropical Medicine, who meet the criteria for one of the grades of membership of the Faculty on the menu.

The College has moved to establish three main pathways for Fellowship, two by “examination” and the other by “grandparenting” by examination of a portfolio of work in travel medicine. It is expected that the former will be the main pathways in the future. Experience in travel medicine and demonstrable participation in continuing education are integral to assessment by the College Board of Censors of how applicants meet the requirements for all levels of Faculty professional membership. None-the-less, membership of the Faculty, as for the College, has been designed to be inclusive rather than exclusive for general membership.

Applicants for membership of the Faculty may apply for one of the membership levels using the prescribed form. Applications will be reviewed by the Board of Censors of the College. The requirements for membership and maintenance of membership may be subject to change.

All applicants must:

1. Applicants must also be members of the College.

2. Medical, nursing or equivalent degree qualification must be registerable in the country in which travel medicine practice is currently undertaken. Equivalent qualifications will include those which qualify candidates to undertake some aspect of clinical work in travel medicine.

3. Experience should be supported by two references or by nomination by two members of the Faculty of which one should be a Fellow.

4. Evidence of commitment to continuing education in travel medicine will be by participation in the Faculty’s continuing education program or in a related CME and MOPS programs offered by other approved professional colleges and organisations.

5. A list of acceptable postgraduate qualifications in travel medicine will be maintained by the College. In general, only named courses in travel, geographical and migrant medicine from approved universities and other institutions will be acceptable.

6.The details for the format of the thesis submission may be obtained from the College Secretariat.
