Traveling to foreign destinations can present health hazards. Those hazards may be unique to the destination or common to most. An Individual's health history may also impact the risk of foreign travel.
The Marquette University Medical Clinic Travel Clinic provides travel health services to students, faculty and staff who are planning on foreign travel.
Personal counseling is required to develop your travel plan of care and allow us to make appropriate recommendations. If possible, schedule your travel counseling session at least six weeks before your departure to allow enough time for immunizations to be given and immunity to develop.
To determine which immunizations you need, call (414) 288-7184 to make an appointment for a travel consultation. Be sure to bring routine immunization information to your consultation. No special immunizations are needed for travel in Western Europe, Canada, Australia or New Zealand, but your routine immunizations need to be current.

If you need a form signed for a “statement of good health” for a VISA or a study abroad requirement, you will need a separate appointment for a physical and there will be an additional charge. If you have had a recent physical at your doctor’s office at home, it may be possible to have the form signed by your provider.
Groups traveling abroad on behalf of Marquette-sponsored programs can also request group presentations for preventive health advice that pertain to those destinations. For more information, call (414) 288-7184.
