Instituto de Medicina Tropical - IMT

 

Foto: Marcos Santos O Instituto de Medicina Tropical de São Paulo (IMTSP) foi criado em 1959 para desenvolver pesquisas e fornecer subsídio científico e tecnológico para o diagnóstico, tratamento, controle e prevenção das doenças tropicais e grandes endemias do nosso país. Durante 40 anos o IMTSP esteve ligado à Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo, mas, a partir de dezembro de 2000, tornou-se uma unidade autônoma, um Instituto Especializado da USP.

As pesquisas no IMTSP abrangem diversos aspectos da ciência médica nessa área, como o diagnóstico, a patogenia e o tratamento, voltando-se também para as questões epidemiológicas e de prevenção. O IMTSP, além de instituição de pesquisa, também é um centro de formação, de aperfeiçoamento e de prestação de serviços especializados na área: possui um curso regular de extensão sobre saúde dos viajantes, para a comunidade externa e no 2º semestre de 2007 teve o curso de Pós-Graduação em Medicina Tropical e Saúde Internacional aprovado pela Capes.
