ESCMID-SHEA-ASID Comprehensive Course in Hospital Epidemiology

21.06.2010 - 25.06.2010 All day

Combined Intensive Programme

This course is based on the successful Training Course in Hospital Epidemiology that is run each year in Europe and is being brought to Australia.  This course features international experts and covers infection control within the hospital setting and will be an intensive program that offers a hybrid of the standard and applied European programmes.

This intensive training programme aims at those working in infection control and hospital epidemiology and is approved by two prestigious international societies in the field of infectious diseases: the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) and the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA).  The ESCMID/SHEA Training Course in Hospital Epidemiology was first established in 1999 and over the years evolved into the leading European course in its field.
