Mycology Course

In every field you will encounter fungal cultures - whether as onychomycosis, tinea corporis or candidosis. These diseases can be harmless or even severe. Therefore it is crucial to not only diagnose the pathogen correctly, but also to carry out the appropriate therapy. We will start with a short discussion of the theory of correct material removal, fungus theory and microscopy. In the Premium Course we then refer to almost all mycological diseases that you encounter in your daily life. Together we visually and audibly work out the learning contents and collect the most important facts in between.

At the end of the medical mycology online course, you will be well prepared to make a quick diagnosis and initiate the right therapy.

Online course with Professor Tietz / E-Learning

Together with Professor Tietz, we have compiled the wide-ranging content of mycology in clear video lessons for you. Since 1985, Professor Tietz has been giving lectures and seminars as part of continuing medical education in the field of dermatology and microbiology.

Thanks to our interactive video lessons, you will be able to go beyond the basic knowledge of mycology.

We show you the microscopy and culture of the pathogens, so that you can theoretically set up and assess a culture correctly on your own.

In addition, we have programmed an interactive trainer in our Masterclass: with the trainer you practice to diagnose the correct pathogen and to initiate the appropriate therapy. We show you the most common fungal infections from everyday clinical practice, including the current and future development of mycology.
