With the increasing presence of paramedics as healthcare providers, many times as the sole medical provider in remote areas,[1] on offshore facilities, humanitarian missions, remote oil and gas facilities,[2,3] and as medics in close protection teams in high-risk areas, as well as at large scale gatherings that carry a history and an increased risk of disease outbreaks [4], the need for non-traditional, specialised education is becoming increasingly apparent. One specialty area of medical practice not commonly addressed in traditional paramedic education is that of tropical diseases and tropical medicine.
