(Online Graduate Certificate)
The University of South Florida’s Graduate Certificate in Infection Control enhances the knowledge base of post-baccalaureate nurses, medical technologists, microbiologists, or other health professionals employed as infection control practitioners. The director is certified in infection control (CIC) and brings over 25 years of infection control experience to administer this program. The design of the certificate encourages critical thinking skills that build competency for infection control professionals and provides managerial skills for effective infection control practice. The courses in the certificate program provide a comprehensive knowledge base to prepare students for the Certification Board of Infection Control and Epidemiology (CBIC) examination. (Note: specific infection control practical experience requirements must be met to sit for the CBIC exam).
Twelve (12) credit hours are required for completion of this Certificate program. It is possible to complete the certificate in one year if two courses are taken in the fall semester. This Certificate is offered online.
