In brief: Plenty!

A travel medicine expert will focus on preventive advice, rx, and immunization to keep you safe and healthy on the road.
Note that this field is much more than "infectious diseases" and includes also travel with kids, while pregnant, with other underlying medical conditions, to altitude, diving, wilderness medicine, etc. You will be well educated yet still excited about your upcoming trip!

In brief: Prevent & treat

Travel medicine clinics specialize in preparing and treating people who are traveling to different parts of the world where different unusual-for-us health concerns may exist.
They usually have the best access to up-to-date information, special vaccines not routinely given in the us, and can give a traveler expert recommendations to stay healthy wherever they go, and follow-up care if needed.
