The training is organised over a period of two years with one day of classes per month (from October to June). The next cycle of the inter-university certificate in Infectiology and Clinical Microbiology is jointly organised by UCLouvain, Université Libre de Bruxelles and Université de Liège and will start on October 12th 2023.

This theoretical course will be complemented by a one-week practical training in a microbiology laboratory or in an infectious diseases department. The course will be given every two years. At the end of each year, the student must pass a written examination. At the end of the cycle, he/she will defend a final work before a jury including the members of the Scientific Committee of this continuing education.

The teaching is organized in modules, in which fundamental and clinical concepts will be integrated and illustrated by discussions of clinical cases. Each module will involve an infectiologist (adult patients) and a paediatric infectiologist associated with a microbiologist and, depending on the theme, a pharmacist, an intensivist or any other specialist. The speakers have all been chosen for their scientific and/or clinical competence in their field.


First year :

  • Basic principles of host-pathogen interactions and laboratory input.
  • Comprehensive review of antibiotics: mechanisms of action, indications, side effects and resistance mechanisms. General epidemiological data.

Second year:

  • In-depth review of the main clinical syndromes (part 2).
