This session provides a pragmatic approach in the diagnosis and management of ill returned travelers. We will explore an approach to generate a differential diagnosis, discuss relevant investigations, and treatment plans, with a focus on the out-patient care of the ill returned traveler. The session will be a blend of didactic and interactive cases and participants should be comfortable in the care of the ill returned traveler by the end of the session.
