Welcome to Tufts University Global Assistance Program

Rest assured that whenever you travel internationally or live abroad, Tufts University has a 24/7 resource on call, online and even on the ground to help with any medical, security and logistical questions, concerns and situations that may arise. So if you need a medical referral, lose your medication, seek pre-travel advice or experience a medical or security crisis, Tufts University has a fully integrated program in place so you receive the care and expertise that you need, whenever and wherever you need it.

Tufts University partners with International SOS, the leading medical assistance, international healthcare and security assistance company. Travel security services are provided by a joint venture of International SOS and Control Risks, the world's leading security risk management firm.

Take advantage of this powerful resource by calling an International SOS assistance center, which has physicians, multilingual coordinators, operations managers, logistics support personnel and medical and security professionals on hand to speak with you.

Also, prepare yourself by browsing through our various medical and security online tools and signing up for our alerts.

Through International SOS Emergency Record, you can safely and confidently store your vital personal health, vaccination and travel information securely online. That way you can access it anytime, anywhere. The information will be available to you and, with your consent, made available to International SOS medical staff to better assist you in the event of an emergency. The system also recommends appropriate vaccinations and sends you reminders when follow-up boosters are required.
