Fellows Of The International Society Of Travel Medicine
It was during the first Conference of International Travel Medicine in 1988 that close to 500 travel medicine professionals gathered and decided to launch the first international society focused solely on travel medicine. Established during the second Conference of International Travel Medicine in 1991 with over 900 delegates, ISTM has now grown to over 4,000 members in almost 100 countries and is the largest organization of professionals dedicated to the advancement of the specialty of travel medicine.
At the 25 year anniversary of the Society, the ISTM Executive Board established the FISTM credential to recognize individuals who advocate for and support the ISTM, and to those who demonstrate professional excellence either in the way of clinical practice, research, education, and/or policy development. An initial group of 18 Travel Medicine Professionals were bestowed the FISTM in 2016 becoming the first class of Fellows. At each CISTM a new class of Fellows are inducted.
