Essential Malaria Diagnostics Course

Dr Ali Mahdi · May 4, 2021

In this course, we will teach you all you need to know about the key principles central to the laboratory diagnosis of human malaria. We will provide an in-depth review of the epidemiology, pathology and clinical features of malarial disease. Building on this foundation, you will move onto the main laboratory tests used, finishing the course with a detailed review of blood film morphology.

If you are training to, or currently report blood films as part of your job, this course is a must.
