Antibiotics are amongst the most commonly used drugs, and any physician, at one time or another, will prescribe them. However, in most medical curricula, the attention for antibiotic therapy is quite scarce.

The department of Clinical Microbiology of the University Medical Center Utrecht has therefore developed a three-day training program in antibiotic therapy. After three successful editions in The Netherlands, this course has now been adapted to an international version, which will be given by international experts in microbiology and infectious diseases in Madrid from November 2nd to November 4th 2017.

In an intensive three-day program, clinical experts will cover the basics of antibiotic therapy,and will discuss the rationale behind the antibiotic treatment regimens of the most relevant infections for medical specialists. The course material will be further practiced with interactive questions.The course strives for maximum interaction, therefore group size will be limited to 56 (two groups of 28).

Looking forward to welcoming you in Madrid in November,
