Course Description: Course Title:  Diagnostic Parasitology I: Intestinal Organisms and Arthropods

Course Duration: 4 Days

Course Location: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Roybal Campus, Atlanta, GA

Course Description:  Diagnosis of most parasitic infections is based upon the morphologic characteristics of eggs and larvae of helminths, cysts, and trophozoites of protozoa, and immature and adult arthropods. Therefore, it is necessary to correctly process, examine, detect, and identify parasitic organisms from clinical specimens. During this four-day, intermediate-level, hands-on workshop, faculty from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will instruct participants in how to detect and identify medically-important intestinal helminths, intestinal protozoa, and arthropods.

Course Objectives:  At the conclusion of this program, the participants will be able to:
  • Describe morphologic characteristics of intestinal helminths, intestinal protozoa, and arthropods of public health concern.
  • Microscopically detect and identify helminths and protozoa.
  • Recognize the common genera and species of medically important arthropods.
  • Detect Cyclospora cayetanensis using fluorescence microscopy.
  • Discuss the process of clearing or staining proglottids with Lactophenol or India Ink.

Continuing Education:  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Laboratory Training Branch is approved as a providers of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. Program.  This course is approved for 18.5 contact hours.

This course has been approved for 24 contact hours in the category of Microbiology/Mycology/Parasitology for Florida Laboratory Licensees.
