Conference Details

New for 2019!
Interactive Learning Guided by Leading IPC Experts


Be among the first to experience APIC’s inaugural Applied Learning Conference (ALC) this fall. This dynamic and engaging event was designed for IPs looking to advance their career. Learn, grow, and network—all in a condensed, 2-day format. Our educational sessions will increase your fundamental knowledge and provide practical skills you need to protect patients in your facility. The 2019 APIC ALC focuses on two key themes* fundamental to the effectiveness of all IPC programs:

Cleaning, Disinfection, and Sterilization

Microbiology and Antibiotics for the IP

Access interactive learning with leading experts in your field and engage in valuable peer-to-peer networking and discussion around the IPC issues and challenges you face every day. In addition, you’ll learn about APIC’s new Competency Model and understand how to practically apply the education you receive at the conference to advance your career. 

*Look for these classifications below the workshop name in the ALC Program Overview.
