INTRODUCTION

This E-Learning course will address topics on Microbiology in Clinical Practice through a dynamic learning experience including lecture videos, animations, and interactive activities. Lab professionals, Microbiologists, and young clinicians looking to strengthen their knowledge in the clinical aspects of Microbiology would benefit from this course.

The content of this course is created specifically to provide clinical components of Microbiology, not to address technical aspects of microbiology laboratory. After completing this course, participants will have a better understanding on the role of Microbiology in clinical practice, which will lead to more competent interpretation and reporting of microbiology results, and consultation between the clinicians and the laboratory personnel.

This E-Learning course has been developed under the collaboration between bioMérieux Medical Affairs Team and Asia Pacific Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infection (APSCMI). The content was created for educational purposes only and not intended to serve as a substitute for professional, medical, and health advice.

Background

Asia Pacific Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infection (APSCMI) is committed to promoting high quality education in clinical microbiology and infectious diseases. In late 2021, we signed an agreement with bioMérieux, a major company in the field of infectious diseases diagnostics, to develop an E-Learning course on “Microbiology in Clinical Practice”.

A team of Clinical Microbiologists nominated by APSCMI together with a team of medical affairs staff from bioMérieux have worked for the last two years to develop six E-Learning modules, which address various clinical aspects of microbiology in improving patient management decisions in modern clinical settings.

We are now pleased to announce that the course development is complete and we launched the E-Learning course officially on 27th November 2023 with a small ceremony in person in Singapore and online. Thank you to all speakers and participants who attended from all over the world.
