Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance

Program Overview

The Surveillance and Research of Antimicrobial Resistance Program equips participants with the skills needed to actively work against antimicrobial resistance. The overall objective of this program is to equip healthcare professionals with the knowledge, and skills to work through the ”One Health” approach, using relevant public health tools to combat antimicrobial resistance. The program’s total duration is three months comprising five weeks of in-service study and seven weeks of field work supervised by a dedicated mentor.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the program, participants will be able to:

  1. Conduct outbreak investigation and response to common public health problems, including anti-microbial resistance and health facilities’ infection
  2. Identify research topics and methods relevant to antimicrobial resistant genes and antimicrobial resistant bacteria
  3. Conduct scientific studies on antimicrobial resistance and effectively communicate them
  4. Provide evidence-based recommendations on antimicrobial resistance through enhanced surveillance and research
  5. Implement and promote antimicrobial stewardship

Training Courses

Participants in this program complete the following four courses:

  1. Basic Epidemiology
  2. Applied Research in Anti-Microbial Resistance
  3. Antimicrobial Resistance-Level 2
  4. Antimicrobial Stewardship-Level 2

Field Work

Participants spend seven weeks in the field in order to be exposed to real-life situations and to practice the skills they gain with the guidance of a dedicated mentor. The following field projects are expected to be conducted during the field work period:

  1. Design a Global Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System (GLASS) for AMR
  2. Plan an awareness-raising campaign on antimicrobial resistance

Targeted Group

This program is designed for healthcare professionalswhich include: physicians in family medicine, primary care, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynaecology, and emergency medicine, surgeons as well as pharmacists, veterinarians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and allied health professionals. This course will also be valuable for those looking for a career in antimicrobial stewardship.
