So if you need a medical referral, lose your medication, seek pre-travel advice, or experience a medical or security crisis, Pratt Institute has a fully integrated program in place so you receive the care and expertise that you need, whenever and wherever you need it.

Pratt Institute 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.

Pratt's International SOS Link

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.

International SOS also offers video training sessions to help you prepare for your travels, including: how to use International SOS, health and safety issues that may come up abroad, and what to do in emergency situations.

Download the International SOS App for easy access to these resources while abroad. 

After downloading the app, create an account at TravelTracker.  Then, upload your flight itinerary.  Pratt will be sent an alert if there is an emergency situation in the country you’ve traveled to.  By inputting your travel information into International SOS, you’ll be letting Pratt know where you expect to be and when so that Pratt can assist you if an emergency situation occurs nearby.

Pratt will only know your location if you input that information, so be sure to check in on the app if you take a weekend trip to a nearby country that isn’t on your itinerary.  Otherwise, Pratt won’t know that you need assistance if something happens while you’re on a side trip. Make good use of your International SOS account. Your safety is our priority.
