As the director of the Georgetown Tropical Medicine Clinic, Dr. Showler loves to teach clinical tropical medicine and parasitology. Infectious disease fellows will gain experience diagnosing and treating a wide variety of travel-related and parasitic infections — in particular as the DC-metro area is home to an extremely diverse population, and serves as a hub for many organizations engaged in international work. Dr. Showler also oversees the travel medicine program, which specializes in travelers with special needs and complex itineraries.
