'TREC' (Travel Health Related Education and Care) courses are designed for registered health care professionals who are either new to the field of Travel Health Care or wishing to update and expand their current knowledge.

TREC was established in 2000 and is accredited as an approved travel health education provider by the Royal College of Nursing.

The courses were developed in response to the interest in, and need for accessible travel-health care, education and vaccine information. To date, over 3000 nurses and doctors have attended training events. We have received very positive feedback from previous students and strive to maintain our reputation for providing friendly but informative education.

Clinic is situated right on the slopes of a great ski resort, Big Sky. With thousands of acres of terrain, high speed quads, and relatively few skiers (compared to the big resorts in Colorado and Utah), skiing and snowboarding here cannot be beat. As you may have heard, some students come here just because of that.

However, we feel that it is the hands-on learning experience of working in a Clinic where we see every kind of ski and snowboard injury that stimulates students the most. As a rule, we are able to see these injuries just minutes after the person gets injured. These musculo-skeletal injuries along with a myriad of other medical problems, tourist related and otherwise, give students an experience that they would not otherwise get in medical school.
