Welcome to the International Society for Human and Animal Mycology (ISHAM) Clinical Mycology Course. This is a follow-on course to the ISHAM Diagnostic Mycology Course. At the end of this course, participants should have a good understanding of the clinical management of cryptococcal infections, invasive candidiasis, invasive mold infections, and endemic mycoses.
The course consists of 12 cases and addresses differential diagnosis, selection of therapeutics, pharmacokinetic considerations, and management of treatment failure for each pathogen. At the end of the course, there is a final examination. Participants who pass the final course exam will receive a certificate from ISHAM recognizing their participation in the course.
The course is aimed at anyone who would like to deepen their understanding of clinical mycology.
The cases in this course have been developed by four expert mycologists: Dr Martin Hoenigl, Dr Ilan S. Schwartz, Dr Matteo Bassetti, and the course chair, Dr John R. Perfect, the President-elect of the ISHAM. We wish to thank Dr H. Ruth Ashbee, Ms Julia Tushla, Dr Lisa Tushla, and Ms Theresa Corso-Stegmiller for editorial assistance.
