REGISTER: Free Online Course by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine


Register for this free, 6-week course, requiring only 2-4 hours of learning per week. Each week is divided into short steps allowing learners to stop and start when they want.

The online course on ‘The Role of Diagnostics in the Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Response‘ is created by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), in partnership with Becton Dickinson and Company, and the African Society for Laboratory Medicine (ASLM) to increase awareness and educate medical professionals about this rapidly escalating crisis.

This course was developed to help medical professionals like you tackle AMR. You’ll explore the varieties of resistant bacteria, such as healthcare-associated infections, clinical syndromes and zoonotic infections, and learn what to do about them.

By the end of your study, you’ll possess a broader awareness of AMR and what causes it. You’ll have a detailed understanding of how diagnostics can be used in prevention, and the targeted use of antibiotics in treatment.

Sign up today before it launches worldwide on 4 November 2019. You can register online now through this link .

Learners who would like to receive a Certificate of Achievement must complete 90% of the course, score 70% or better on the final quiz and pay £42 to FutureLearn, the company which hosts the online course.
