There will be intense practical sessions using high quality clinical samples for microscopy examination, reallife cases and interactive photo quizzes. These sessions will cover about 70% of the course and will be alternated with in-depth lectures given by experts in the field of clinical parasitology. By the end of the course the participants will be familiar with clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of most common parasitic infections, including those seen in travellers and immigrants such as malaria, schistosomiasis and intestinal helminths. Some less common parasitic infections will be discussed on the final day, as well as the role of molecular diagnostics within routine laboratory practice. This 5-day international course is part of a full two week course designed for Dutch clinical medical microbiologists in training and experienced senior technicians. The Dutch parasitology course has been successfully organised by the same Leiden group for more than 20 years.
