AMP Certificate Program: Hot Topics in Infectious Diseases

This AMP certificate program contains 5.5 hours of lecture content, the associated pdf slides of the lectures, a post-course exam, and an AMP Certificate of Completion. It also includes CME and CMLE credits.

The ability to understand the world through the use of molecular tools has led to fascinating discoveries in the field of microbiology and infectious diseases. In this certificate program, participants will learn about the current state-of-the-art infectious disease topics with the emphasis on the key topics and advances in infectious disease testing and their impact on patient care practices and in public health. This certificate program will review updates on what's new in sexually transmitted disease (STD) care, rapid diagnostics point of care tests, metagenomics also known as microbiome and its impact of bacterial diversity (microbiome), and human health by using next- generation sequencing.

Target Audience: Clinical and research lab professionals at any level (clinical lab professional, researcher, educator, clinicians, graduate or undergraduate students).
