USEFUL LINKS & RESOURCES
We have found the following websites to be useful. If you know of additional sites that might be helpful
to clinical microbiologists, please let the officers know about these sites at the spring and fall SEACM meetings.
American Society for Microbiology
This gives you access to ASM and to all of the division websites:
American College of Microbiology
A component of the American Academy of Microbiology responsible for accreditation of postdoctoral training programs, certification of microbiologists and immunologists, and other programs.
ASM Division C Competency Assessment Resource Website
This website provides a large variety of material for anyone involved with competency assessment
Multi-level Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Educational Resouces (MASTER)
This site was created by Janet Hindler and Fred Tenover. Need we say more?
The Free Medical Journals Website
This site gives you access to a large number of journals. For most of these journals, you cannot obtain the last 1-2 year issues without a subscription. However, there are notable exceptions, such as the British Medical Journal, to this rule.
