Pediatrics – Infectious Diseases


Travel and International Clinic

The Pediatric Travel / International Clinic, part of the Department of Pediatrics at Boston Medical Center, sees children who will be traveling outside the United States who need evaluation for potential travel related illness and refugees who have recently arrived in the United States. (Please note that the Refugee Health Assessment Program sees patients that are referred from specific resettlement agencies; thus, we do not make appointments for these patients outside this system. New immigrants to the US should have their appointments made with primary care professionals with whom they plan to establish long-term care.)

We collaborate with internists, specialists in adult medicine, and therefore are able to see all members of a family if desired. The clinic is staffed by physicians with expertise in pediatrics and internal medicine as well as infectious diseases, international health, advocacy and child development.

Our international clinic provides consultation services for diseases acquired abroad, including parasitic infections and other conditions such as malaria, schistosomiasis and strongyloides, which may be unfamiliar to many American physicians. Visit the Pediatric Travel / International Clinic website.
