Course Description

This course will provide an overview of antimicrobial resistance and address mechanisms for both reducing and improving antimicrobial use in our practice. Risk factors for some of the most common and troublesome resistant pathogens will be discussed as well as interpreting culture and MIC results.

Seminar participants will receive 1.5 units of CE credit.

This course satisfies the one hour of California CE requirement on the judicious use of medically important antimicrobial drugs.

Beginning January 1, 2018, a veterinary licensee must complete a minimum of one credit hour on the judicious use of medically important antimicrobial drugs every four years for license renewal. For example, if your license expires on March 31, 2018, you will need to complete a judicious use course between April 1, 2018 and March 31, 2022. After the initial course has been completed, you will need to complete a judicious use course at least every other renewal period.
