The course will cover the topics related to antimicrobial resistance with basic definitions and overview on antimicrobials their use and the emergence and spread of resistance. The course will guide you through the concepts and the importance of resistance spread and dissemination and how that happens. It will show you how bacteria become resistant and which mechanisms they might use for this. And as part of the course you will also receive some training in methods for antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) and detection of specific resistance in the microbiological laboratories with the basic methods available and with focus on the obtention of good quality results which can be interpreted and used for different purposes.

TOP REVIEWS FROM ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE - THEORY AND METHODS
I would personally recommend this course to any student aiming for a brief introduction to antimicrobial resistance and also to anyone looking for a very nice and quick brushup of the concepts.
An informative course especially for identifying drug-resistant strains such as MRSA, ESBLs, et. Also the criteria for avoiding false positives or negatives have been emphasized very clearly.
The course is really interesting and I can apply the knowledge accumulated from the course into my current work as an epidemiologist related to AMR surveillance. Thank you so much!
Good course. It encompasses majority of the concepts and all the concepts are easy to understand. Also it is really good course for someone who is studying microbiology.
