The Society has recently established a permanent Education Committee to respond to the growing need for dissemination of information regarding tropical and travel medicine. At the ASTMH Retreat several Educational Committee members of the Council—Michele Barry, Jay Keystone, Peter Weller, MacWilson Warren, and Dickson Despommier—set about the task of identifying groups in need of our educational efforts defining educational objectives and translating these into achievable goals and outlining various approaches for the delivery of education programs. The first effort was to identify consumer groups to which educational efforts might be directed, namely graduate students, research scientists, residents, house staff, and practicing physicians, especially those interested in tropical medicine. Several potential vehicles for such an effort were identified, including pre- and post-meeting workshops, plenary sessions as well as symposia on specific educationally relevant topics at the annual meeting and the Journal.
