The intended audience consists of hospital physicians who often prescribe antibiotics such as specialists/ residents in internal medicine, acute medicine and intensive care as well as beginning residents in infectious diseases and medical microbiology. The course addresses the basics of microbiology and antibiotic therapy and discusses the rationale behind therapeutic choices for the different major infectious syndromes in approximately 18 hours of classes. The lectures are interactive through a voting system with questions integrated in the presentations and rehearsal of the material at the end of each day. At the end of the second day, a selection of cases from participants will be presented by the participants and discussed. To optimize interaction, a maximum of 56 participants will be allowed, which are split up in two groups for half of the workshops.


After this course, the participants should:
• Understand and have a basic knowledge of the classification of bacteria and the spectra of different antibiotics.
• Understand the rationale behind the choice of antibiotic therapy for the different major infectious syndromes, i.e. urinary tract infection, pulmonary infection, skin and soft tissue infection, sepsis, catheter-related infection, bacteraemia and sepsis, fever in neutropenic patients, endocarditis and systemic fungal infections.
• Be able to choose the appropriate (empiric) treatments in their own clinical setting.
• Be able to adapt the choice of antibiotics to common test / culture results and common antibiotic resistances.
30 – 56 residents in medical microbiology and infectious diseases, ICU specialists and fellows, internal medicine specialists and fellows.
