Selection for the Lab enrollment will be based upon current requirement.

Short/Mobile (3 - Day) Course:

The short course is scheduled with units preparing for deployments and will be set on the dates and locations that fit the units training calendar.

****The clinical track will have a brief overview regarding the labs and mobile lab instruction but be mainly focused on case studies. ****

****The lab track will focus on microscopy, malaria diagnostics and blood differentials, intestinal parasites, entomology vector control and vector and parasite biology, RDTs (Malaria and HIV), and Leishmania. ****

Fees: There are no fees to attend the WRAIR-GEIS OCID Course (including the 5-day course onsite at WRAIR and the Mobile 3-day course), however, your unit may have to pay for travel and board (TDY) if not local.

While the course is limited to full-time students, there is an "auditor status" in which personnel can attend strictly the lectures and get CMEs for attendance.

However, due to the popularity of this course, it is recommended that students register as soon as possible. Seats will be filled on a "first-come-first-served" basis.

Continuing Medical Education (CME) Credits:

This course offers continuing education credit through the U.S. Army Medical Command. The U.S. Army Medical Command is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The WRAIR-GEIS OCID is certified for CMEs for both courses.

Attendees should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Also, we are currently participating in the AMEDD Academy of Health Sciences accreditation process to have this course listed in ATRRS.

Each student will be required to register on-line to receive CME credit. For more information visit the following link: globe4.gif.
