  • Implementing antimicrobial stewardship
  • Outbreak management in the healthcare setting
  • Approach to control of bioterrorism agents
  • Advanced occupational health management
  • Prevention and management of multidrug resistant organisms including: methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, vancomycin-resistant Enterococci, extended-spectrum β-lactamase–producing Escherichia coli, and C. difficile
  • Device-associated infections including: catheter-associated bloodstream infection, catheter-associated urinary tract infection, and ventilator-associated pneumonia
