Online Infection Control Course Recently Updated

An updated version of the popular online infection control fellows course—developed by IDSA, the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), and Johns Hopkins University—is now available at

Designed to give infectious diseases fellows and others basic training in infection control and hospital epidemiology, at their own pace, and without having to travel, the course satisfies the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) requirement for training in hospital epidemiology.

Featuring entirely new content and topics, the course is geared toward first- and second-year fellows in infectious diseases training programs and includes lessons from world-renowned faculty from various specialties in health care epidemiology. The cost is $250 per registrant, and registrants will receive a certificate of completion when they finish the course. Training program directors who enroll their fellows in the course can request final scores for the trainees they registered.

For fellows progressing through the earlier version of the course, it remains available at
