NHSE IPC Education Framework level: This course aligns to Foundation and Enhanced levels

In 2015, we launched a structured trainee education programme specifically for medical microbiology, medical virology and infectious diseases trainees which is aligned to the JRCPTB and RCPath curricula. The programme comprises a series of three, independent, one-day training sessions per year (in February, July and October/November), over a three-year period.
