EQA Programs – Expert Committees

Clinical Microbiology Proficiency Testing (CMPT) is a university based, peer directed program. Committee members volunteer their time and are essential for developing the program, selecting challenges, assessing results, and creating critiques. The time and efforts of the committee members are critical to the function of CMPT and are much appreciated.
