Mycology MasterClass IX

The Mycology MasterClass is held every 2 years and is internationally recognised as a valuable and prestigious advanced training program in medical mycology.

It attracts significant demand for places and will once again reflect current clinical and laboratory practice with a program of lectures and problem based learning exercises. The program has been formulated by ANZMIG and is a consensus of the most topical issues in mycology selected by the key Australasian opinion leaders in this field.

Special discount registration fees will be available to financial members of the Australian Society for Microbiology (ASM), Australian Society for Infectious Diseases (ASID) and Haematology Society of Australia and New Zealand (HSANZ). Registration includes conference sessions, catering on each day, and a social function in the evenings.
