An educational critique is generated for every single challenge of Clinical Bacteriology, Enteric Parasitology, and Mycology EQA programs.

Each critique includes the challenge results reported by the participant laboratories, a discussion about the results, information on identification, antimicrobial susceptibility, clinical relevancy if applicable, as well as main educational points.

Critiques are written by the Expert Committee Members and are discussed by the whole Committee so that the points outlined in  each critique represent a unified view of the experts in each discipline.
