Background: To improve and standardise the training of medical pathologists in microbiology, PRIDA has developed an annual online medical microbiology course that originated in 2017 when it was attended by PNG pathology trainees. The course faculty includes experienced pathologists, physicians, scientists and researchers. The PRIDA postgraduate education web resource reflects much of the previous course content. In 2022, there were 27 successful course students.
