Objectives of the MJC IC:

-        The main objective is to define European standards of medical education and training in Infection Control (IC).

-        The availability of European Infection Control core competencies is a cornerstone for harmonising infection prevention and control training and education in Europe

-        Proposed MJC on Infection Control would ensure that part of curriculum and European Training Requirements pertaining in IC in both ID and MM specialties are structured in a similar way.

-        As a next step, this MJC in IC will plan to set up a European Certificate in Infection Control for medical specialists.

The scope of MJC IC is education of European Medical Specialties. Their own core curriculums should incorporate IC standards in which most of the specialties have little/no competencies. The Objective of MJC IC is not to create a new specialty, but to give support to all the medical specialties on IC competencies, of course on the basis of an European standard (ECDC, EUCIC, etc):
