PATH: Centre for Point of Care Diagnostics Training Courses

The Centre for Point of Care Diagnostics is part of PATH's Global Health Diagnostics (GHDx) Center, led by the University of Washington Department of Global Health, Medicine (Division of Infectious Diseases), and Laboratory Medicine, offers a four-tier progressive training program to engage individuals with varied experience and backgrounds from the fields of assay and device development, clinical laboratories, and disease specialties.

The Global Health Diagnostic (GHDx) courses create a networked group of POC test developers and POC test users from low-resource settings for training in state-of-the-art technology and challenges for global health in low-resource settings. Networking and collaboration among individuals with this unique skill set is more likely to result in the development of technologies appropriate for use in low-resource settings, thus expediting the transition from research to meaningful clinical use.
