Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (DTM&H) is a postgraduate award, given after a prescribed period of instruction followed by an examination consisting of three parts; (a) a written examination (b) a practical laboratory examination and (c) an oral examination. In some schools, a fourth part consisting of a clinical bedside examination may be required.
The DTM&H is offered at the London School of Tropical Medicine, at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and at Mahidol University Faculty of Tropical Medicine, The DTM&H Coursework at Mahidol University, Faculty of Tropical Medicine is a 6-month program in an area endemic with many tropical diseases.

The University of Glasgow in conjunction with the Royal College of Physicians offer a part-time course taught both online and in house which leads to DTM&H qualification.
The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland and Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland jointly offer a similar course, but the diploma awarded is called the Diploma in Tropical Medicine. That is abbreviated as DTM RCP&SI or DTM RCPSI.

The American Society for Tropical Medicine and Hygiene administers an exam and Certificate in Tropical Medicine (CTropMed) for graduates of DTM&H courses.
