Post-doctoral training program in Clinical Microbiology
Clinical Microbiologists have a broad scope of responsibilities and are expected to demonstrate competency in many areas of laboratory medicine, including:
- Creating and directing an accredited clinical/diagnostic laboratory service, both operationally and financially, that will support and improve the clinical diagnosis and epidemiological investigation of infectious diseases.
- Generating, disseminating and interpreting data from microbiological investigations as they apply to the diagnosis, management, and treatment of patients with infectious diseases and public health scenarios involving infectious diseases.
- Developing and supporting accredited microbiology training programs for clinical/medical professional and technical personnel.
- Establishing and supporting microbiological research programs that advance the field of infectious diseases for improved patient care and public health.
- Acting as a microbiology consultant to support clinical and public health programs/initiatives at the local, national and international level.
The two-year post-doctoral program in Clinical Microbiology will prepare trainees to apply for examination as a Fellow of the Canadian College of Microbiologists (FCCM). FCCM certification is formal recognition that an individual has demonstrated proficiency in, and comprehension of, the specialized body of microbiological knowledge necessary to provide clinical, scientific and administrative oversight of a clinical microbiology laboratory.
