The Professional Practice Committee’s (PPC) mission is to provide professional development opportunities and content to members to increase their skill, enhance their job performance and contribute to the profession. The PPC will serve the microbiology profession by representing clinical microbiologists and immunologists, microbiologists working in the pharmaceutical, environmental and food industries, and biological safety officers. Currently, the PPC oversees professional certification, accreditation of postgraduate clinical training programs, the clinical microbiology portal, mentoring for clinical microbiologists, and the Speakers' Bureau. The PPC also develops evidence-based and consensus-based practice guidelines.
