CISTM15 Banner

In 1988 the first Conference of International Travel Medicine gathered close to 500 travel medicine professionals. Building upon this success, the second Conference of International Travel Medicine was held in 1991 with over 900 delegates, and it was during this conference the ISTM was established. ISTM has now grown to 3,500 members in close to 100 countries and is the largest organization of professionals dedicated to the advancement of the specialty of travel medicine.

CISTM15 in Barcelona marks the 25th Anniversary of the founding of ISTM during the 1991 Atlanta meeting. Throughout the meeting, we will be celebrating this anniversary, including a special Gala Dinner.
